A LIFE-SIZE bull has been given pride of place at the entrance to Dunfermline’s Bull Park.

The unique addition is part of a major revamp of the park spearheaded by the Milesmark and Baldridge Community Council.

A team of volunteers was on hand recently to put down foundations for picnic benches which will soon be added to the area’s facilities.

Ian Smillie, who is part of the sub committee formed to improve the park, was delighted with the way work had progressed.

“The first stage was the bull itself which is looking splendid and is a very positive thing for the area,” he said. “The second phase is the picnic benches. We have ordered these from the prison service and we hope to get them installed within the next two to three weekends.”

Future plans for the park include the addition of a trim trail as well as an area to play the traditional game of quoits which, the committee believe, was played on the park in days gone-by.

Funding for four picnic benches was donated by Ian Brown Garage, Simpson Motors, D&G Autocare and Essport Autoparts. Help in getting the area prepared for them came from Roy Grieve Gardening and Handyman Services.
