Selkirk’s Pringle Park
Nancy Ovens Awards, 2015 – “Play area that demonstrates the best in community involvement”
Selkirk’s Pringle Park playpark was completely transformed thanks to a major redevelopment led by the local community, one hundred years after the former farmland site was first gifted to the local community.
“The Pringle Park Project is a fantastic example of the positive changes a community can make by getting actively involved in the future of their communal spaces.”
A group of mums led Selkirk Playpark Project (SPP) and won the maximum award from The Big Lottery’s Community Spaces Scotland fund to develop the site, making better use of this local space and improving the environment for all. The success of the playpark, with its imaginative design, demonstrates the massive support for the project in the local community and from Scottish Borders Council.
“Pringle Park is now a beautiful place to spend time in”
