Steward Park Pond
A postcard showing women and children gathered around one of the two ponds in Stewart Park, Woodside.

The park was official opened on Saturday 9th June 1894. See the Aberdeen Journal, 11/06/1894, p. 6, for an account of the ceremony.

See also the Journal of 06/06/1896, p. 5, for an account of the park's development and a description of its original lay-out.

The ground for the park, north of Hilton Road, contained two deep, water filled holes that were part of the disused Hilton Quarries and posed a danger to playing children.

In creating the park, these holes were drained of their water and then filled for the most part with earth. A reduced surface depth of 12 to 16 inches of water was created. The old quarry holes were thereby transformed into safe and attractive additions to the new park.
