CUMBERNAULD Village officially opened their new play area last Saturday (June 8th) in a festival of games and outdoor entertainment. 

The Jubilee Park play area idea was revitalised by Village resident and Chair of the Jubilee Park Organisation, Julie Flynn, and seen the sod cut by council officials, residents and Cumbernauld Labour MP, Gregg McClymont, on April 8th 2013.

Since the sod cutting ceremony, Jubilee Park has seen a rather quick construction of play equipment – to which local kids have already enjoyed climbing, jumping and swinging on. 

In a sun soaked Cumbernauld Village, council officials, residents and Abronhill, Kildrum and The Village’s Labour Councillor, Stephen Grant cut the red ribbon to officially announce the new play area open.

The new Jubilee Park play area was installed as part of a partnership between Cumbernauld Village Community Council; the Jubilee Park Organisation – an organisation set up to officially look at plans to install a play area; local Councillors; and, North Lanarkshire Council. 

At the official opening, Mrs Flynn told Cumbernauld Media that the event was “fantastic”, adding that everybody had a “great time” at the event.

Julie said: “It has been a fantastic day; it was well advertised and we managed to get a really good turnout. The kids had a great time, and the council’s play officers came down; we had people playing games with the attending kids, and everyone had a really great time.”
