Two slides in a city park re-opened after essential maintenance

Two slides in one of Aberdeen’s most popular parks were re-opened today – in time for the start of the summer school holidays - after getting essential maintenance and repairs.

The two chutes which are on the embankment at the south side of Duthie Park were closed this month while the work took place. The project included resurfacing, blacksmithing, masonry and painting work, which took place to the steps, railings and the surfaces at the top of the chutes. The City Council’s tree squad also cut back some overgrown branches which were hanging over the steps.
