THE largest playpark in Fife has been opened at Lochore Meadows County Park. 

Situated in the heart of Lochore Meadows, the official opening of the new accessible destination playpark on Thursday (March 28) marked a massive milestone for the community as councillors, staff, and, most importantly, children from local primary schools came together to celebrate. 

Councillor Linda Erskine, spokesperson for Communities and Leisure, said: "Having attended many meetings of the Friends of Lochore Meadows and requesting the capital funding for this project, I am truly delighted that we are now opening what will be a great facility in the park.  

"This represents a significant investment in our community's well-being and is a testament to our commitment to providing accessible and inclusive recreational opportunities for everyone.

"The park will not only allow kids to be creative but also encourages social interaction and physical activity among our young people and I look forward to seeing families enjoying themselves here for years to come." 

The new playpark has over 80 activities and offers something for everyone to explore and enjoy. 

From the classic swings and slides to new sensory experiences, there's something to keep every little adventurer entertained for hours on end.

Councillor Alex Campbell, Convener for Cowdenbeath Area Committee, added: "I am delighted to see the culmination of months of planning and collaboration come to fruition with the opening of this magnificent playpark.

"Its expansive range of activities and inclusive design reflects our dedication to creating spaces that cater to the diverse needs and interests of our community.

"I have no doubt that this park will become a cherished destination for families from near and far. It’s great to finally see this project come to life, and the smiles on the kids' faces today remind us why projects like this are so important. 

"It's not just a playpark; it's a space where kids can explore, learn, and make memories that'll last a lifetime."

One of the standout features of the new playpark is the 'sensory dome', an addition that promises to transform play experiences for children of all abilities.

The dome mixes climbing equipment with things that engage senses, so it encourages kids to play together and explore their senses in a fun and exciting space.

As the first of its kind in Scotland it represents a new step towards creating more inclusive and accessible play spaces for all.
