Access improvements for Lochee Park #dundeewestend

The City Council's Neighbourhood Services Committee recently approved welcome access improvements for Lochee Park.

The Service Manager - Environment has updated me with details as follows :

"I can confirm that the intention is to improve the access for wheelchairs from inside the park so they can more easily move between the park area and the Fruit Bowl facility. 

Where the current service/ vehicle access gates are located, we plan is to improve the surface around the gated area by levelling the area and installing grass Crete tyles, which are heavy duty non slip rubber mats which allow grass to grow through. 

This improvement will allow wheelchairs to move more easily into the Fruit Bowl from the park and the access will continue to be used for service vehicles to drop off and uplift materials as required."
