    Involve the school when up grading parks.
    Remember teens use the space too, a number of partks are designed for under 5's

    Make sure that there is planning in the Council budget to maintain equipment – not just install it and then leave it to deteriorate. This is very short term thinking.

    I love the exercise equipment added to the parks. Could people be trained to do circuit classes to help people have the confidence to use the kit (this could be volunteers, providing session once a month)

    The main thing is to make sure there is an adequate budget for maintenance. The current level of maintenance is very poor and the lack of maintenance is easy to see. So much so that you have to wonder whether Fife Council are capable of it. Maybe the parks should be an arms length body like Fife Sports and Leisure Trust.

    delegating some funding and control to community councils so they can make sure that what is there is relevant for their area and that it is maintained on a timely basis

    Activity space for older children and also young children over toddler age would be a good thing. The public park Dunfermline had tennis courts, anything like that would help to give them something to do.

    My only comment on this is to ensure that dogs are kept away from play parks or at least should always be on a leash. (Original comment by Morag)
