Playpark official relaunch – 1st July 12pm – POSTPONED

UPDATE: This was event postponed but the park will be open shortly!

One of the long-held aims of the Friends of Dudhope Park group was to see the playpark facilities completely redone, and it has been fantastic to finally see this become a reality within the last few weeks as work started on site by ripping out the old equipment and then the current installation of brand new equipment as well as landscaping etc.

The work is almost finished and an official reopening will take place on Monday 1st July at 12 noon.  We really hope that many of you can come along on the day to show your excitement about the new facilities!
