Improving Play Areas

Last week I met with Invergowrie and Kingoodie Community Group who have improvements to Invergowrie Park at the top of their agenda. Following on from the workshops at the school and a couple of community surveys, our Landscape Architect, Russell, had drawn up a draft plan for the park to help with discussions.

The old equipment has come to the end of it’s life and the new play equipment will fit into the woodland setting, being made of wood with ropes. There will also be informal play encouraged with mounds and logs.

It is hoped the new play area can incorporate equipment suitable for children with a range of abilities, such as a roundabout accessible by wheelchair, a basket swing and sensory equipment, with pathways for access.

The community are looking at doing their own fundraising for park improvements to add to the funds the Council has committed to spend and hope to raise money in the future for things like a seesaw, sensory equipment, lighting bollards, path and fence improvements. They are also hoping to involve the Men’s Shed in the project. Watch out locally for news on the pub quiz fundraiser and the Wine & Gin Tasting evening!
