PLAY parks, outdoor gyms, skate parks and multi use games areas are back open through the Cowdenbeath-Lochgelly area.

Following the latest advice from the Scottish Government Fife Council re-opened their outside play facilities on Monday.

The council is putting up safety signage at these facilities asking the public to: wash their hands before using any equipment, follow physical distancing rules, cough or sneeze into tissue or elbow, and

always be respectful and considerate of others.

Andy MacLellan, Team Manager, said: “It's great we're re-opening our outdoor play facilities in time for the school holidays but need to continue following the Scottish Government's guidance on this.

"We look forward to welcoming communities back to our parks and open space facilities, whilst reminding everybody to continue observing physical distancing, regular hand washing, and use a common sense approach.”
