    A new inclusive play area’s been installed at Kings Park in Stirling.

    The facility now includes a wheelchair accessible roundabout, more sensory equipment, and a wheelchair-friendly picnic bench.

    The upgrades, worth £40,000, were funded by Stirling Council – and there’re plans for similar developments in Killearn, Cambusbarron and Raploch.

    Convenor of the Environment and Housing Committee, Councillor Jim Thomson, said: “We want our children to be as active and healthy as possible, and the improvements made to the playparks are a great example of how committed we are as a Council to providing facilities that will help them achieve this.”

    Vice Convenor Danny Gibson said: “Play parks offer a number of positive benefits for pre-school and young children, including improving health, learning and physical and social development through play, exercise and interaction with greenspace

    “The funding has made real changes to these parks, providing excellent outdoor facilities for children and families to enjoy.

    “The improvements are a wonderful example of the council engaging with local communities in order to take Stirling’s play parks and green spaces, which are a vital resource to our residents, to the next level.”

    Scottish Conservative Group Leader, Cllr Neil Benny, said:-

    “I welcome this continued investment in play areas and inclusive equipment. This is one of the core duties of any Council and people expect their children to be able to play on good facilities and in safety. However we do need to see a clear commitment that play areas will be properly fenced off to keep dogs out and we need a change of approach to make improve our parks, picking up the grass cuttings would be a big step forward. Once again the efforts of the volunteer groups often involved is key to these projects.”
