Dundee City Council to invest £320,000 in play parks

AN investment of £320,000 is to be made to improve and enhance play provision in Dundee, the city’s council has announced.

Councillors are to be asked to approve proposals which include the installation of balance beams, rope bridges, somersault bars, net climbing equipment, monkey bars, suspension bridges and log steps across Dundee.

Anne Rendall, neighbourhood services convener at Dundee City Council, said, “It’s very positive to be able to welcome such widespread investment in play during a time when our outdoor spaces and outdoor exercise continues to play a big part in our lives.

“These proposals are very exciting and I’m sure many children and families will get great enjoyment out of them for years to come. We’re committed to keeping our parks an attractive place to visit because we know how much residents value them.”
