THE following is a summary of the May 2013 update provided by the team behind Cumbernauld Community Park, in Balloch.

Another month and another increment has been added in the continuous development of the Community Park. Rather a big step, in fact, at the new Play Park. The safety checks on equipment have been done, any comments or suggestions about items sorted and play equipment declared safe to use. As soon as word went out to the schools the site was filled with children from all around Playpark in Use and their parents. There is still some work going on as I write, e.g. completion of the surrounding fence and some landscaping. Grass seed which was sown a month ago has still not germinated and as a result the Play Park seems bare. I hate to say it in the recent good weather but it could do with some rain. The MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) could not be constructed within the present budget as costs increased over the last 2 years however, it is still in prospect and we are waiting on further news about funding.

Overall it was a great day, a big step forward and a very welcome addition to the facilities in the Community Park. There are still some things to add, more litter bins, benches and because we are still seeking the funding for the MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) the formal opening event is delayed – a relief for the schools as it is one last thing they do not need to organise before they break up for the summer.
