Children can now enjoy a fantastic new climbing structure known as ‘bird nest’ along with a new flying fox and group swing. New swings have been added together with a roundabout, trampolines and springer for toddlers.
In addition, the stonework at the park entrance has been restored and park furniture, gates and railings repainted. The work was carried out by the Council’s Land Service during March through to June and finished in time for this years Cambusbarron gala day.
To mark the end of the revamp P1 children from Cambusbarron Primary School tested the new equipment for themselves. They were joined by Stirling Council’s Convener for the Environment Councillor Danny Gibson, local Councillor Scott Farmer and Stirling Council Land Services Officers David Crighton and Colin McKay.
Councillor Danny Gibson said: “What a fantastic difference the refurbishment of the park has had with lots of fun and challenging play equipment for children of all ages. The local community and children themselves were instrumental in deciding what types of equipment they wanted the park to have. I hope all children will have great fun for many years in this much loved local park.”
The play facilities have been improved following a community consultation by a landscape architect. The project has been funded from a combination of monies from housing developer Persimmon Homes for community facilities in the Cambusbarron area and the Council’s Land Service.
