Children in Stirling can look forward to a summer of fun with a packed programme of Play in the Park events to keep them entertained during the school holidays.

Stirling Council's FREE Play in the Park activity programme will be available from Monday 27th June at 21 different venues across Stirling throughout the summer.

The Play In The Park events are hosted within open green spaces or within play parks in the Stirling Council area.

The team set up a variety of marquees to provide a wide range of intergenerational play activities for children and families to access over a three-hour period.

A summer of fun

Convener of the Children and Young People Committee, Councillor Danny Gibson said: “Our Play in the Park events during the school holidays are incredibly popular for families to enjoy outdoor activities in a fun and safe environment.

“These events are totally free and make fantastic use of many of our beautiful green spaces across Stirling. I’d encourage families to take part in Play in the Park while the schools are off and enjoy activities that are entertaining, engaging and educational. I’m delighted our young people have a summer of fun to look forward to.”
