A city centre park is to close in preparation for a four-day festival.
Aberdeen’s festival of light, Spectra, will be held in Union Terrace Gardens next week.
To allow artists to set up their work, the space will be closed to the public.
The gates leading to the gardens will only be open from 6pm to 9.30pm when the festival begins on Thursday.
Aberdeen City Council said Union Terrace Gardens will completely reopen to the public at 5pm on February 14.
