Spateston Community Development Trust have raised over £100,000 towards our target of £122,000 for the playpark redevelopment plan in Spateston Community Play Park.

There has long been demand for a play park improvement in Spateston. The new playpark will act as a social hub and fun but educational play space for our children and young people as well as parents: servicing a population of around 5000 people.

Each area has been designed specifically to each age range aiming to physically stimulate, encourage social engagement and facilitate informal learning. The fully inclusive play area will be one of a kind for the local area. In the spirit of the climate emergency and COP26 in Glasgow we want to contribute to lowering carbon emissions to net zero. We can achieve this by providing an excellent local play space which means less travel emissions. This newly improved play park will encourage our children and young people outside again after the damage the pandemic has caused to their physical and mental wellbeing. We also believe the project will help curve anti-social behaviours by providing an adequate space for physical activity.

The designs for the project have been on display at two recent social events, shown to school children and have been voted on in a online poll. We continue to adapt these to get it right and will take the lead from the communities children on this.

This project will provide and array of benefits to our local community all of which contribute the aims of the local development plan of making Renfrewshire safer, healthier, and fairer.

Please donate to help us reach our funding target and create a safe playpark that will engage children of all ages and creating a green space that will have lasting impact on mental health and physical well-being.
