Aberlour / Leisure & Culture Dundee

A collaboration between children’s charity Aberlour and Leisure & Culture Dundee, this project aims to promote the use of green space and natural outdoor spaces for free play opportunities for children and families in Dundee and raise the profile, and promote the benefits, of outdoor free play, especially to parents.
