A £70,000 expansion to Rosyth skatepark could be on the cards if funding is secured.

Since its opening in December 2013, the facility at the Public Park has become a well-used facility for kids of all ages.

Now, community group Take a Pride in Rosyth have plans to extend the skatepark in a bid to make it more inclusive.

The project is expected to cost £70,000.

Martin Rogers, secretary of the group, said: “The skatepark is a popular feature of the park.

“But because it’s quite small, it can be quite hard for different ages and abilities to play altogether on there.

“Just by nature, it’s hard for a five-year-old on a little scooter to play alongside a more adventurous teenager trying to do tricks.

“We always see a lot of children using it though and we know that public support and demand for it is there.”

The Take a Pride in Rosyth group first came together in 2011 with the aim of giving a new lease of life to the Public Park.

Over the years, their projects have involved revamping the boating pond, completion of the skatepark and multi-use games area, and provision of an adult gym.

The group do have some money in the pot to put towards the cost of a bigger skatepark but are also having to seek funding from outside sources.

An application has been sent to Fife Environment Trust for £50,000 and locals took to Facebook to offer their support for the project.

Donna Vanda Kase said: “Brilliant idea! Both my grandsons use it on a daily basis, therefore I’m all in favour.

"Our young people need outside interests more now than ever! This is a fantastic idea to support their fitness and mental wellbeing.”

Louise Marie Kelly said: “My wee boy is always at the skateboard park ... gets our vote!”
