Organisation aims and objectives

Duthie Park is one of the best purposely and designed parks in Scotland. The park has undergone a major restoration to help restore many of its features to their original forms when the Park was opened in 1883. As a key part of the Duthie Parks success, the Park wants to extend its voluntary opportunities in Gardening and Park Rangers. As a volunteer you will learn new skills in gardening, learn about the local environment, history of the park, engage with other members of the community, and provide opportunities for those who may want to return to employment or be a bit more active in the outdoors.
