Work has begun on the replacement of equipment at a children’s play park.

Straiton Park in Portobello is to be upgraded as part of the city council’s Play Area Action Plan.

The play area has been closed to allow the installation of a play ship unit, sand play area and a toddler swing unit 
suitable for children aged between two and 12 years old.

The work will also see the removal of the dog grid entrance and the fitting of a self-closing gate to prevent toddlers from wandering.

Consultation on the plans involved community groups and local residents.
