Two Dundee parks could be in line for a total of nearly £80,000 of investment to help improve and protect facilities for the future.

A new surface is being proposed for the play area at Baxter Park, while the former bowling green there could be redeveloped with landscaping following consultation with the Friends of Baxter Park.

Meanwhile, the Friends of Dudhope Park have been involved in proposals to create a dog exclusion zone by putting in fencing around the play area.

The plans will be discussed by Dundee City Council’s environment committee on Monday December 7.

Depute environment convener Councillor Vari McDonald said: “These investments in parks shows how we are working in close partnership with local people who get involved in their parks.

“They are playing an important part in our Take Pride in Your City campaign.

“This investment in both Baxter and Dudhope parks are intended to improve the areas for our local communities, help improve safety and reduce the long-term maintenance burden.”
