A £180,000 playpark and multi-use games area was officially opened in Boglestone, Port Glasgow.
Open space in front of the community centre has been transformed as part of Inverclyde Council’s programme of investment in play areas in Inverclyde.

The park has been landscaped and features a multi-use games area (MUGA) with lighting controlled by daylight sensors and a time clock, a play area and a large cable swing / zipwire. Seating has also been installed across the site.
Pupils from nearby schools were consulted about the design of the facility and, since the park has opened to the public, children and parents have been flocking to the new facility.
Education and Communities Vice Convenor and Inverclyde Young People’s Champion, Councillor James McColgan said: "The new play park is an excellent addition to the area, providing a modern state-of-the-art facility for the community for years to come.
"Play areas like this hold the key to improving the health of our communities, by giving children and young people a fun and safe environment to play in and enjoy, helping to get them away from the TV and be more active, more often.”
