More than 100 play parks in Glasgow are set to be refurbished as part of an ambitious £6m plan.

Glasgow City Council vowed to invest the money citywide in the next five years.

In total, 133 play areas are planned to be renovated, including in Ruchill Park and Hogganfield Park.

As the Glasgow Times reported in August, the latest is currently closed due to its state of disrepair.

A spokesperson confirmed that the work will start in the next financial year.

Some parks have already benefitted from the boost, which aims to support a healthier lifestyle for adults and children.

Councillor Ruairi Kelly, Glasgow’s convener for neighbourhood services and assets, said: "A detailed report on this large-scale programme of work was presented to the committee last year.

“A brand new toddlers’ play area has just been installed in Garrowhill Park and Glasgow Green Play Village, Cavendish Street Play Area, Beardmore Park Play Area and Kelvingrove Park Play Area have all just reopened to the public after being upgraded.

"They all offer free-to-use fun facilities where young people can burn off excess energy and enjoy outdoor play and socialising which is so important to their physical and mental health.

Ruchill Park is also currently benefitting from the installation of a brand new outdoor gym which has just opened to the public – perfect timing for anyone who vowed to get fit in 2024.

"The free-to-use gym has everything you need for a full workout, including a chin-up bar, vertical ladder, arched overhead ladder, sit bench and leg raise station.”
