A £2.24m million pound project to regenerate Grangemouth’s historic Zetland Park has made it into the finals of the first ever Scotland Loves Local awards.

The inaugural event celebrates individuals, businesses and community organisations from across the country that have made a positive impact on their local communities.

Zetland Park Regenration project has been shortlisted in the Streets and Spaces category.

The awards are organised by Scotland’s Towns Partnership (STP) as part of the Scotland Loves Local campaign, which encourages everyone to choose local and support businesses in their communities to build a better, stronger future.

Winners will be announced during an online event – presented by STV weatherman Sean Batty – to be broadcast via social media on Thursday, November 25.

The Zetland Park regeneration has already seen the creation of a £353k fully inclusive play park, designed for all ages and abilities and includes a wheelchair swing, a play friendly replica of Grangemouth’s historic paddle steamer the Charlotte Dundas and a sensory garden.

The £100k pump track was completed in May 2021 and can be used for all wheel sports including bikes, scoioters, skateboards, roller blades and skates and is suitable for beginners to expert riders.
