A new playpark in Lochore Meadows Country Park is open for business.

Situated in the heart of Lochore Meadows, the £700,000 playpark has over 80 activities and can cater for up to 200 children at a time.

It also includes sensory activities to make the area accessible.

Councillor Linda Erskine, Spokesperson for Communities and Leisure, said: "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." 

Councillor Alex Campbell, Convener for Cowdenbeath Area Committee said: "I am delighted to see the culmination of months of planning and collaboration come to fruition with the opening of this magnificent playpark.

"Its expansive range of activities and inclusive design reflect our dedication to creating spaces that cater to the diverse needs and interests of our community.

"I have no doubt that this park will become a cherished destination for families from near and far.

"It’s great to finally see this project come to life, and the smiles on the kids' faces today reminds us why projects like this are so important.

"It's not just a playpark; it's a space where kids can explore, learn, and make memories that'll last a lifetime."
