Still time to talk - about play parks in Fife

Thornton Public Park play space

Local communities still have a chance to help us shape the future of play spaces across Fife by giving their views on our Play Spaces Strategy.

The strategy will help us address some of the long-term challenges we face in developing and maintaining play parks. The consultation will run until 31 December 2019 to gather feedback that will influence the final plan, we encourage members of the community to have their say.

We need a strategy as :

  • Most of the play equipment will be at the end of its life in the next ten years;
  • Many of the play parks, can only have equipment that can be used for toddlers;
  • We need to have good greenspaces for children to play in.

What we propose doing:

  • Fundraising and upgrading many of our play parks.
  • Changing some existing sites with play equipment to greenspaces for play.

The draft strategy and proposal maps for each town and village are available online and can be viewed and downloaded at www.fife.gov.uk/playparks - and there’s also a link to the online consultation that will collect feedback.
