Sprucing up Windmill Gardens

Regular users of the children’s playground in Windmill Gardens will have noticed that the play equipment has recently been repainted. It now looks much brighter, thanks to two corporate teams organised by our close neighbours Bounce Back, a charity and social enterprise focused on the training and employment of ex offenders.

We thank Fran, Dabz and all the Bounce Back team as well as the two volunteer groups from city firms Landsec Securities and Aberdeen Standard Asset Management for their support and hard work.

Now we need to improve the rest of the park if we are to retain our Green Flag Community Award. We have two evening gardening workshops planned during July in Windmill Gardens:

  • Tuesday 3 July, 6-8pm Our FoWG parks group will be joined by Good Gym to tidy up the flower beds, weed all the paths and the children’s playground and water some very thirsty plants that are struggling during this very hot weather. If you can join us tonight please look out for Annick and Sheila who will be in the park and can tell you how you can help.

  • Thursday 12 July, 6-8pm We will be pruning, weeding and improving the herb bed and re-planting the three wooden planters.

We want Windmill Gardens to look its best when the Green Flag mystery shoppers visit the park! If you can come along on either 3 or 12 July please email
