WORK is now underway to improve and upgrade a Rosyth playground. 

Camdean Play Area on Primrose Avenue is currently undergoing improvements which will see new equipment installed for the local kids. 

Colin Ross, the founder and Chair of Future Youth Scotland, the charity that has worked closely with Fife Council to make this possible, told the Press: "The project has been ongoing for about a year and a half and it’s part of Fife Council’s initiative to improve the playpark spaces across fife

"[The Council] obviously needed a community group or charity to work alongside them on the project, so we’ve been working on things like funding, design and community consultation."

Dunfermline Press: Work is underway to improve the park.

And after a huge effort from the charity and its sponsors and funders - Fife Council, the Rosyth Community Council, the Fife Environment Trust, the Co-op Local Community Fund, the Scottish Landfill Community Fund and the Nisa Store on Queensferry Road - they're ready to see the fruits of their labour and give their kids somewhere safe and engaging to play. 

He continued: "The contract went out to tender, a supplier was selected by Fife Council and they are now on site doing the works to rejuvenate and upgrade the park with a whole new play park.

"There's not enough provisions for young people in the local community. Rosyth in particular has lost a couple of youth centres that used to hold youth clubs and then a lot of the outdoor spaces are a bit run down and decrepit.

"It's really important to have engaging spaces for young people so that they’re not getting bored or getting up to mischief."

The new park will see a combination swing set, flower seats, a four-way springie seesaw, a Toddlerzone Daffodil climbing frame, an inclusive flower springie, a back-to-back roundabout, a toddler swing, a high cone climber, a Mission Enigma climbing frame and rubber spheres. 

Once renovations are complete, Future Youth Scotland will be holding an opening day celebration at the park.

Further information on this will be posted at a later date on the charity's Facebook page
