Re­me­dial plan of ac­tion agreed for Oban play­parks

The Oban Times - - News -

A SHORT-TERM and long-term plan for Oban Com­mu­nity Play Park were agreed last Thurs­day.

All three ar­eas have been closed to the pub­lic due to safety con­cerns, but the play park com­mit­tee hopes they will re­open on Satur­day Novem­ber 5.

A short-term fix will be car­ried out in the big park to deal with the trip haz­ards from where the floor­ing has split. Fresh bark will be placed in the un­der-fives park to cover the ma­te­rial that was start­ing to show.

In the long term, Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil will bring in a drainage ex­pert to as­sess the ad­ja­cent field and tennis courts.

Wick­steed, the com­pany that laid the floor­ing, will find a longterm fix as soon as the weather per­mits, which is un­likely to hap­pen un­til spring.
