The Play park has a New Facebook page click here for updates.
Below you will one of two signs placed at the entrance gates to the playpark.
As the community council co-owns the playpark with Scottish Borders Council, we have created rules for the usage of the park. Please adhere to the signage.
Well Finally the day arrived - where we can celebrate over two years of planning, funding and umpteen email exchanges and phone calls. The park was officially opened today by one of the oldest residents of Reston Jim Hardie. We thought it pertinent to have one of the older generation alllow access to the younger generation.
Thanks to so many people today in helping us celebrate this event, the first in the Borders.
Thanks to the Village Hall committee and the community council in providing the hospitality, the cakes, the hotdogs, (not forgetting the candyfloss) and sausage rolls. We also had a visit from the Kompan Representative and is family, trying it out!
This park was the brainchild of Kerry Simmonds, not long after being newly elected as a community councillor to Reston and Auchencrow community council, Kerry came up with the idea to replace the old tired looking playpark. It was her persistance and perseverance that we are here today. A special thanks goes to Kerry.
Apologies for the sound quality of this video.
