A £200,000 project to revamp the St Nicholas Centre rooftop into a family friendly space has been unveiled.
The project, spearheaded by business group Aberdeen Inspired, aims to encourage locals to make use of the city centre space with new picnic areas, a playground and innovative lighting.
Eighteen flowerbeds have been revamped with an array of wildflowers alongside a variety of plants to brighten the space.
On Friday, Lord Provost George Adam unveiled a granite plaque at the rooftop garden accompanied by Margaret Rae, wife of late former Lord Provost Henry E Rae who initially opened the garden 30 years ago.
The Lord Provost said: "With a wonderful display of wildflowers and the addition of a children’s play area the new-look roof garden will be a real attraction for all ages.
"Congratulations must go to everyone who has been involved in revitalising the garden."
Gary Craig, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, added: "The roof garden is a legacy project for Aberdeen Inspired and we want both families and individuals to enjoy the space for years to come."
To mark the occasion, a family fun day will be held on Saturday at the rooftop garden from 10am until 3pm.
Throughout the day, music and entertainment will be provided by Guarana Street Drummers, Busy Beasties and the Owl and Pussy Cat Centre with performances, workshops and food on offer.
The new name for the children’s play area will be unveiled on the day following a primary school competition to search for a new monikor for the city centre space, with nearly 50 names for the space suggested by pupils from across Aberdeen.
The project was partially funded by Aberdeen Inspired as well as partners Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeen Greenspace, Bon Accord and St Nicholas and Atkins and Creative.
