A new playpark for Ratho Station Park

June 2014 saw the opening of a brand-new play area in Ratho Station Park, creating a welcome new playpark for local children.

The design and choice of equipment came about with close collaboration with local residents and helped deliver a key aim of the Area Action Plan and Edinburgh's Play Strategy.

Principal funding came from City of Edinburgh Council, with a valuable boost from Edinburgh Airport's Community Board which allowed us to add to the project by including benches, a picnic table and seats, slabs and rubber ground cover - all helping create greate surroundings for the new play equipment.

The park was officially opened in June when the ribbon was cut by pupils from nearby Hillwood Primary School.
