Auchterarder Public Park

Last Wednesday I was asked by Auchterarder Community Sports Association to help them facilitate a workshop in the Institute to find out peoples ideas for making one of the parks in Auchterarder better. The park, near the hospital, is known by many names including the Public Park, Top Park and Primrose Park.

Before the meeting we put together an online and paper survey to canvas people’s ideas and were overwhelmed with responses. 226 people completed the survey giving lots of great ideas.

32 people attended the workshop last week where they wrote and drew on plans of the park provided by Steven our Landscape Architect and discussed ideas. There was a great buzz of enthusiastic discussion in the room.

9 people volunteered to form a working group to take the ideas forward. The plan is for Auchterarder Community Sports Association to find funding for a feasibility study using all the ideas gathered. So watch this space for the next instalment on improving this park!
