The finishing touches have been put to a £90,000 wetlands project in an Aberdeen park.
The Seaton Park wetlands were officially opened yesterday.
Former flood-hit land has been turned into a feature which will eventually be filled with wildflowers.
The area had been badly flooded and rendered unusable by recent bad weather, so it was decided to embrace the changes and form the wetlands.
Aberdeen City Council leader Councillor Jenny Laing said: “This is a wonderful project and I’m very happy to be officially opening it.
“Seaton Park is already a popular place to go for people to relax in or take part in sporting activities, so having the wetlands area here will be a big draw for families and wildlife watchers. I think it’s a great example of what can be achieved when the council comes together to work with the local community.”
A paths improvements project was also carried out simultaneously which saw two new footways created.
In addition to funding from Aberdeen City Council, some of the money for the projects came from Aberdeen Greenspace and sustainable transport charity Sustrans.
The combined total for both projects at Seaton Park is estimated to be £200,000.
