A “mini Westburn Park” with water features and a dog walking area is to be created next to an Aberdeen football club.
A flood alleviation scheme and exercise trails are also expected to be built beside Sunnybank Football Club in Heathryfold.
It comes after the city council unveiled the next phase of its Heathryfold Park and Middlefield regeneration projects.
A flood alleviation scheme, costing £640,000, is to be created in the area, beside the football club, which is prone to flooding.
In addition, proposals have also been put forward to improve the area’s park, with a new play facility as well as a dog walking area.
Draft proposals have been drawn up and a further £460,000 has been secured to provide this.
Residents are being offered the chance tohave their say on the final layout.
It is hoped a Friends of Heathryfold Park group will be created.
Councillor Gordon Graham vice-convener of the communities, housing and infrastructure committee, today spoke of his excitement at the proposals, comparing them to a mini Westburn Park.
He said: “It will never compete with the likes of Hazlehead Park but this will be a fantastic local park for the community to sit and enjoy.
“The park itself will almost be like a mini Westburn Park because there will be water features there too.
“It will be unique depending on what the community decide to put in the area.
“The area is currently used but this will be even better when there are more facilities there.
“It’s a really exciting time for Heathryfold. This will be really good for parents to take their children to the area.
“The project will help Heathryfold become a more attractive place to come and stay.
“I already think it’s an attractive place because I have lived there for 59 years but this will make it even better.”
Council officers have also confirmed a further £150,445 will be spent improving crossings on Provost Rust Drive and Manor Avenue.
It’s also hoped a further £469,000 will be used for routes across the park that would connect the pathways/cycle routes on Auchmill Road to Provost Rust Drive, bypassing the Haudagain Roundabout.
