More than £350,000 worth of improvement works to play areas, parks & green spaces throughout Dundee could get the go ahead from city councillors.

Proposals will be put to councillors to install adventure trail equipment at several locations, carry out tree works at Balgay Park, implement a series of individual projects throughout the city, install an attractive therapeutic garden at the Lily Walker centre and conduct a renewed programme of public play area improvements.

If approved, the various environmental improvement works are expected to be completed by March 2022. 

Neighbourhood Services Convener, Councillor Anne Rendall said: “It’s very positive to see such wide-scale investment in our outdoor areas across the city. Some of the projects are particularly exciting with the revamp of the Lily Walker centre’s reception area to include a therapeutic garden for service users.

“Additionally, I know the investment will create new outdoor opportunities for children and families with the installation of adventure trail equipment at five different play parks and the upgrade at another.

“It’s important that we continue to keep Dundee’s outdoor spaces attractive and safe for everyone to use. The commitment to spend to maintain and improve the current offering in the city is paramount and will allow more people to get outside and enjoy their neighbourhoods.”

It is also proposed that over £60,000 worth of security and path works take place at city allotments to carry out fencing works at Old Craigie, replace a gate at Magdalen Green, and install DDA complaint path networks at both Fintry & Whitfield Community Gardens.

The Neighbourhood Services Committee will consider the proposals at its next meeting on Monday 27th September.

Full details of the improvement projects can be found on the Dundee City Council website.
