Riverside Park Redevelopment

The redevelopment is reaching its final stages, the new playground being the latest part of the upgrade to be completed.

The former playground, toilet block and dog park, removed to make way for the Pettigrew Green Arena expansion, have been reinstated following extensive community consultation.

The new, fully fenced playground is the latest stage of the redevelopment of Riverside Park, behind the Pettigrew Green Arena in Taradale, to reopen. 

This area has accessible equipment, and includes a drinking fountain, picnic seating and a shade sail.

The final stage has seen the installation of a toilet block.

The Dog Park features an agility track, dog friendly drinking fountain, and dog poo-bag bin. It is wheelchair accessible and has an outdoor seating area, with significantly more natural tree shade. 

Recently completed were improvements to car parking and pedestrian connections from Murphy Road, including installing a vehicle turnaround. A gate was added at the end of the Murphy Rd access, to prevent vehicles from using this entrance after dark.
