The city on your doorstep. Without doubt, this will be a place where memories are made. Come summertime, Countesswells' Central Park could play host to all kinds of local events and community happenings. And with the great outdoors beckoning along every path, there are plenty of opportunities to meet friends for adventure too. Whether you’re up for a lazy, loved-up stroll, a muddy adventure with mates or a book club base, you won’t have to look far at Countesswells.

Real communities thrive where people know each other. Where they meet, smile, stop and talk. Where they feel a real sense of belonging. Countesswells offers a wealth of open spaces and welcoming public amenities to bring the community together. Essential facilities will be close at hand too. Two new primary schools and a secondary school will form part of Countesswells, as well as a new medical centre, plenty of places to run clubs and societies, and not to mention outdoor spaces to use to full advantage in the Central Park.

Café culture

Dotted around the Central Park will be plenty of opportunities for local shops, cafés and bistros to provide the perfect place to pick up groceries and spend time with friends. You are also minutes from the upmarket restaurants, delis and boutiques in nearby Cults. 

The buzz of the city
