A new play park has been unveiled after a huge investment made it possible.

Thornliebank has welcomed state-of-the-art equipment including climbing frames, slides, accessible swings, and roundabouts for children to enjoy.

There are also picnic benches with spaces for wheelchair users after the community had their say in the park.

More than £125,000 has been invested in the new facility through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund as well as the Scottish Government’s Play Park Renewal Fund.

East Renfrewshire Council has recently completed a £90,000 refurbishment of McDiarmid Park play area in Barrhead, with a range of new equipment installed.

This upgrade was also funded through the Scottish Government and people in Barrhead had the opportunity to tell the Council the improvements they wanted to see.

Councillor Danny Devlin, Convener for Environment and Housing, visited the park with pupils from Thornliebank Primary School and Glasgow's Gaelic school Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig.

He said: “This is a fantastic new facility for the younger members of the Thornliebank community and beyond.

“We’re committed to creating and maintaining high quality parks and public spaces for our residents and this play park, along with McDiarmid Park, is testament to that.

“It was great seeing the pupils from Thornliebank have fun today as they tested out the new equipment and, as we head into spring, I look forward to seeing lots more children enjoy this play park.”
