The council will consider plans to invest nearly £200,000 in Camperdown and Dudhope parks

Plans to invest nearly £200,000 in parks and green spaces in Dundee are to be considered by the local authority.

Dundee City Council's environment committee will vote on proposals to spend £95,000 at Camperdown Park and another £90,000 at Dudhope Park.

The money would be used to improve children's play areas at both parks. There are also plans for adult outdoor gym equipment at Camperdown.

Councillors will make a decision on the plans on Monday 14 January.

The improvements to Camperdown Park are part of a £500,000 programme of upgrades being carried out by the city council between now and 2014.

Outdoor investment

The authority's environment convener councillor, Craig Melville, said: "I am pleased to bring forward two separate proposals for investment at Camperdown and Dudhope.

"We are very proud of our green spaces and play areas and I am pleased that significant consultation has been carried out over the Dudhope proposals.

"These plans will see the provision of improved and more inclusive children's play equipment at Camperdown and Dudhope, while there are also proposals for adult outdoor gym equipment at Camperdown."

He added: "I am keen that as many people as possible can spend time and keep fit in our parks and that there are attractions for all the family."
