Play area improvements

Have your say on the refurbishment of your play area

Perth & Kinross Council maintains over 150 play areas; to allow us to manage these to a satisfactory standard we have a rolling programme of play area improvements. Each year we focus on the improvement of approximately six play areas that are coming close to the end of their usable life, usually after 15-20 years.  If you would like information about a specific project please contact communitygreenspace@pkc.gov.uk.

Play areas to be improved in the next few years

  • Wallace Park, Glenfarg - Trim trail equipment and cableway due to be installed November 2022.
  • Victory Park, Bridge of Earn - Consultation on the site masterplan and play area design occurred summer 2022. Final design underway.
  • Seven Acres Park, Letham - Masterplan development underway.
  • Davies Park, Kinross - Community Group established to raise additional funds for larger scheme.  To be developed and completed mid 2023.  Many thanks to volunteers.

Thank you for feeding back into our design process. The guiding principle of new designs is to balance a stimulating playscape with the need for low maintenance.  To this end, we aim to provide places that are fun to use and are in an attractive setting.

Dog issues

We often receive comments about dog fouling. View our dog fouling page for further information and how to report dog fouling.  With sufficient evidence the Council can issue warning letters or Fixed Penalty Notices against offenders. The Council's Operations service will also be informed of the fouling and will take steps to inspect and collect as necessary.

Getting involved with improving your local play area

Throughout our programme of improvements (scheduled above), Community Greenspace worked alongside a number of our communities to improve their local parks and play areas. However, if you find that there is interest and enthusiasm in your community for a new or improved play area, we have the tools to support you to do this.

These documents are also available for schools to download from Glow, the online community for Scottish schools and can be found in the PKC Documents Section in the Folder "Play Park Improvements".
