Winter walk planned for Seaton Park


Aberdeen City Council's Ranger Service is inviting local residents to take part in the next in a series of the popular Health Walks programme.

Seaton Park train station. Countryside Ranger Ruth Bone will lead a group round Seaton Park on Thursday [31 January]. Walkers are asked to meet at Seaton Park car park off Don Street beside the play area at 2pm.

Ruth said: "If your New Year's resolution is to walk more, it is not too late to get going and a gentle stroll around Seaton Park is a great way to start.

"Some of the paths may be wet or muddy so wellies or sturdy footwear is recommended. There will also be a chance for keen walkers to extend the walk to the Brig O' Balgownie."

The walk is free but booking is required. It will be weather-dependent and Ruth will contact those taking part should the decision be taken to postpone.

For more information or to book call the Ranger Service on 01224 897400 or e-mail
