Park Improvements

The council has allocated funds through our 2014/15 park improvement programme to carry out some of the most popular park improvements from the survey.

These may include (depending on costs):

  • Converting the existing amphitheatre into a natural play area for the park
  • Lighting and decorating the underpasses to make them feel safer and more welcoming
  • Creating paved plazas for socialising
  • Moving the cycle path away from the road and into the park to encourage cycling
  • Creating an events space for community events
  • Planting new plants along the riverbank to increase the wildlife value of the river edges
  • Providing interpretation boards for informal learning about local wildlife

Dedridge Environment Ecology Project have already improved the confluence of the Dedridge Burn and the River Almond, as part of their Dedridge Burn improvements. This is a great start to improving the whole Almondvale area and something which the council can now expand on.
