Stirling Council

Scotland’s First Ever Dementia Friendly Park

Dementia Friendly Park

SCOTLAND’s first ever Dementia Friendly park is being launched yesterday (5th) in one of Stirling’s best used recreational areas by walking charity, Paths for All.

In a bid to make Stirling’s Kings Park more accessible to everyone, the city space has been transformed to allow those living with dementia to be able to enjoy, and feel safe in, outdoor spaces.

Minister for Mental Health, Maureen Watt, attended to officially open the park.

A celebration event between 1pm - 3pm was held at the Smith Art Gallery and Museum on Dumbarton Road, to discuss the changes made to the park.
