So come along on Sunday 25th August between 12noon and 3pm, we look forward to seeing you there!
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!
The Friends of Dudhope Park and Dundee City Council invite you to have your say on the future of the Dudhope Park play area.
A drop in will be held to allow you to have a look at plans for the play area, have your say and find out how you can get involved.
Come along to the Dudhope Centre (Bharatiya Ashram), 5 St Mary’s Place on Tuesday 30th October 1pm – 3pm & 4pm – 6pm.

Your Play Park for Your Family…
The Friends of Dudhope Park are campaigning to have new play equipment installed in the children’s play park. We have asked Dundee City Council’s Environment Department to come up with a plan for a new play area on the site of the existing play equipment. However, we need local people to support us in making our case, to look at funding opportunities and to help Friends of Dudhope Park grow their campaign.
This follows extensive consultation at our last two summer events where park users overwhelmingly said that they wanted to see improvements to the play area and that they wanted it kept on the existing site.
To make this a reality we need park users, their friends and family to join us and help us get the type of play equipment that young people will want to use and that they deserve.
We will now look at what avenues are open to us via different funding streams in order to make the new play area happen. In order to do this we also need community support. If you would like to help us work towards getting a better play area for local children then please contact The Friends of Dudhope Park for details of how you can get involved and help make a difference fro local young people today and in the future.
