Scotland’s First Dementia Friendly Park Opens

Scotland’s first ever Dementia Friendly park is being launched today (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, will be there 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. 

A tour of the park provided opportunities to learn how better design of outdoor spaces can help improve the quality of life for anyone living with dementia.
