A Glasgow park is set to receive funding worth £45,400 in a bid to boost plans to give a playground a makeover.
Kelvingrove Park, in the west end of the city, is set to add two new pieces of equipment to its play area, which is also due to be resurfaced, after the investment was signed off at the Hillhead Area Partnership meeting on Thursday.
A council report said the money was match funding, adding to developer contributions and funding from the Scottish Government.
It is part of the council’s local parks and open space improvement fund for this financial year, which will see £1.5m going to area partnerships across the city.
Resident Stewart Leighton, of Woodlands and Park Community Council, said: “I would certainly welcome any investment in Kelvingrove Park.”
Another £3,600 investment was proposed to plant trees and native woodland bulbs and plug plants at greenspace at the corner of North Woodside Road and Maryhill Road.
However, the decision has been delayed as Green councillor Martha Wardrop and SNP councillor Ken Andrew asked for maps to clarify exact location details for the site.
