Work on the City's newest park is about to begin.
West Highlands Park in Aberdeen is getting a 1.8-kilometre multi-use path/loop, pathway lighting, a longboard training area, two sports fields, a community building and horticultural garden.
City parks and civic facilities manager Jeff Putnam said Wednesday the path will be paved on one side for scooters, wheelchairs and other uses, and will have shale on the other as a soft surface for runners.
The budget for the park is $200,000.
The City plans to have the park open year round, with snowshoeing trails and other amenities in the winter.
The two sports fields will be used for soccer in peak season, and other games outside of that.
