Repair work at Victoria Park #dundeewestend

From the council’s Neighbourhood Services Area manager for the west of the city :
 
“As you may have noticed that there is an area of grass that has been killed off in the middle of the park – this is due to a damaged underground cable.  
 
SSE will be carrying out extensive repair works to this on the 28th May
 
This will comprise of large excavations for around 5/6 weeks.  
 
The area will be secured with Heras fencing each night and weekends.
 
Once repairs have been completed SSE sub contractors will repair the area.”

Victoria Park – new tennis courts #dundeewestend

Having updated residents over the past few years over the council’s proposals to improve the tennis courts at Victoria Park, it is great to see the new tennis courts now complete and looking great!
 
There’s been very positive feedback from constituents.   “Before” and “after” photos below :
I’m pictured a few years ago at the old tennis courts – above
 
The new tennis courts are a very substantial improvement

West End playpark improvements

Having long campaigned for an upgrade to the Victoria Park playpark, it is good to see the proposals for the impending improvements agreed by the council’s Neighbourhood Services Committee – here’s a couple of images of the plans that should be completed before the end of March :

 

Last July, I raised with the council residents’ requests to make improvements at the playpark in Milnbank Road/Bankmill Road and I am pleased at the positive response to my request.   On Monday, the council’s Neighbourhood Services Committee will consider the following proposal :

Milnbank Play Area – Improve all surfacing within the play area. This includes removing slabbed surface and replacing with rubber mulch safety surface and additional ground restoration works.

I am also pleased that the following proposal is also being considered on Monday :

Magdalen Green Play Area – Improve stability of the well-used banking by installation of a Scramble net to enhance play for users and additional restoration to safety surfacing.
