Around 600 people came out to celebrate the officail opening of Almondvale Park recently.
Executive Councillor for the Environment, Tom Conn, cut a ribbon to officially open the park on what turned out to be a warm, sunny day.
Councillor Conn said:“I was delighted to perform the official opening. The atmosphere was very relaxed and everyone seemed to enjoy the activities which were on offer. Almondvale Park is a great open space in the centre of Livingston and it has something to offer for every age group to enjoy whether it is to visit the play park, walk, cycle, run or just sit and relax.”
The improvements were jointly funded by West Lothian Council and Sustrans Scotland’s Community Links programme, which is funded by Transport Scotland. They represent an investment of £1.2million in total.
A number of organisations attended on the day providing a variety of interactive stalls, displays and activities.
Sustrans Scotland Community Links manager Tom Bishop said:“We are really pleased that the works have now been completed at Almondvale Park. The route forms a key part of National Cycle Network Route 75 and we hope that the improvements will make it easier and safer for more people to walk and cycle for more of the journeys they make every day.”
