Construction News Image
Work has been completed at Lochore Meadows Country Park in Fife.

The official opening of the playpark marked a significant milestone for the community with local councillors, staff, and most importantly children from local primary schools joining together to celebrate this historic occasion.

Situated in the heart of Lochore Meadows, the new playpark has over 80 activities. From the classic swings and slides to new sensory experiences, there's something to keep every little adventurer entertained for hours on end.

Councillor Linda Erskine, Spokesperson for Communities and Leisure, shared her excitement about the new playpark, stating: "Having attended many meetings of the Friends of Lochore Meadows and requesting the capital funding for this project, I am truly delighted that we are now opening what will be a great facility in the park. This represents a significant investment in our community's well-being and a testament to our commitment to providing accessible and inclusive recreational opportunities for everyone. The park will not only allow kids to be creative but also encourages social interaction and physical activity among our young people and I look forward to seeing families enjoying themselves here for years to come."

One of the standout features of the new playpark is the 'sensory dome,' an addition that promises to transform play experiences for children of all abilities. The dome mixes climbing equipment with things that engage senses, so it encourages kids to play together and explore their senses in a fun and exciting space. As the first of its kind in Scotland it represents a new step towards creating more inclusive and accessible play spaces for all.
