Aberdeen City Council - Duthie Park

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.


Current opportunities

At Duthie Park you will have the opportunity to work at one of best purposely designed gardens in Scotland. Opportunities can either be inside the famous Winter Gardens or outside in the Park. You will be given the opportunity to help out with the day to day maintenance of the gardens, planting and there will also be an opportunity to learn more about the history and heritage of the Park.
