The River Don runs through Woodside, and mills were built on the banks. There were small schools which struggled to cope with the influx of children. A new school was built in 1834; this is now the Burgh Hall.
Woodside School is on the corner of Clifton Road and Smithf. The head teacher is Mr Burr.
The first part of the school was built in 1890, and it was extended in 1902; these dates are on the building. The nursery is in a separate building and has its own garden.
The library was built in 1882.
It used to be called Anderson library after Sir John Anderson, who was born and raised in Woodside. It is a large granite building styled like a church.
There are 67 "March Stones" around Aberdeen. King Robert I ("Robert the Bruce") gave the people of Aberdeen the land around the city in thanks for helping him in 1313. This land was known as the Freedom Lands of Aberdeen, and the March Stones mark the boundary.
The March Stones start with Alpha and end with Omega. The route around them is approximately 26 miles long. Woodside March Stones are numbered 50, 51 and 52. Station House Media Unit is the 'guardian' of March Stone 50, and Woodside Primary School is the 'guardian' of stones 51 and 52.
There used to be two churches in Woodside, named the North and South Churches. The North Church is now a block of flats. Choirs, drama groups, dances, musical nights and concerts were held there.
In Woodside Parish Church today are youth clubs, the Boy's Brigade, Girl Guides and indoor bowling.
