SBC is investing over £4 million in Play Areas and Outdoor Community Spaces over a seven year period.  The intention is to improve community wellbeing and enhance outdoor activity for children and young people inclusive of all levels of ability.  SBC currently has 187 play parks ranging from smaller local areas of play to destination play parks.  A programme of investment has been developed based on previous improvements to play areas and community spaces to provide children and young people with meaningful play opportunities.  To help ensure this is achieved, play areas will include items that are accessible for all such as wheelchair roundabouts, trampolines, ramped multi plays, basket swings and play panels.

Activity is already underway to develop play areas in various sites across the Scottish Borders.  The play area at Woodstock Avenue in Langlee, Galashiels is also due to receive a £60k investment. This survey is to find out what improvements people would like to see in this play area.  

Why your views matter

SBC would like your views of how the play areas can be improved to help shape the future of these play areas for children and young people. 

What happens next

The results of the survey and next steps will be available to view here.  SBC will continue to work with the community as the play area is developed.
