Wyvis Natural Play ParkPost in Community Assets by Sharon Wright
The park has been designed to include climbing and balancing structures of varying heights and difficulties to suit different ages and abilities, together with swings and a zip wire for added excitement!
A large part has been left as natural forest where children can explore, play hide and seek, build dens - wherever their imagination takes them.
Created to encourage families to spend more time outdoors, for children to interact with natural materials and enhance their play potential.
From concept to completion, this play park has taken 4 long years and a lot or hard work!
The idea was to encourage more families to do the spectacular 2 miles circular nature walk, the play area being a real incentive for the children!
In addition, if local families want somewhere to take their children and meet up with others, they inevitably drive away from our area, as there is nowhere locally to go. Now families can come into our area and as a result bring potential footfall for future community projects.
We believe the park to be a real show stopper, something to be immensely proud of and will put Garve and District firmly on the map as a place people want to visit!
All the hard work has been worth while when you receive feedback like this:
Just spent a fantastic afternoon here with our Grandsons.
Parked up at Silverbridge, walked to the park, stayed for 2.5 hrs (inc picnic), bumped into friends, walked back on the other side of the river and utilised the facilities!
Fantastic, safe, outdoor experience for all ages!
Thank you sooooo much!
