Just Transition PB Fund – Friends of Westfield Park
Just Transition PB Fund
In Year 1 of the Just Transition PB Fund, Friends of Wesfield Park received a grant of £10,400, following the public vote in Aberdeen, to purchase a storage container to hold tools and equipment with a green roof; gazebos for holding community events in all weathers; and interpretive panels & signage to help people identify and learn about the wildflowers and wildlife in the park.
The voluntary led organisation are passionate about improving and enhancing their local park so that it can be enjoyed by all for outdoor exercise, learning about nature, volunteering, community events and improving mental health and wellbeing. Westfield Park is a fantastic but relatively little-known greenspace right in the middle of Bridge of Don, with three schools, a sheltered housing complex and a doctors’ surgery on its border. The park is accessible for all ages, and abilities.
