Let's talk...about play spaces

Description

From 21st August until 10th December 2019, you can take part in our discussion on the future of play spaces.

Play spaces include equipped play parks, greenspace with play features (e.g slopes for sliding, logs for climbing on), and greenspaces for playing in, (e.g parks and woods). We are looking at the future of Fife Council play spaces.

We need a long term plan as there are a number of issues with play spaces. Most of the play equipment will be at the end of its safe use in the next ten years. Many of the play parks can only be used by children under the age of 5.

Fife Council has a draft Play Spaces Strategy to address these challenges.

If the Council approve the strategy, it will:
• be used to secure funding for upgrading play parks,
• ensure play parks have a range of equipment that can be used by all ages of children
• transform many greenspaces into play spaces

The strategy and maps showing our proposals for each town and village can be downloaded from Fife Council’s play parks webpage https://fifedirect.org.uk/playparks/

After the let’s talk discussion, a report will be compiled. This will be used to aid councillors on approving the strategy.
