New cycle tracks, exercise areas and children’s play equipment are at the heart of plans for the ambitious redevelopment of a Peterhead park.

Volunteers at Peterhead Area Community Trust (PACT) have outlined the next stage of their plans for Victoria Park, following on from a well-received public consultation.

Trustee Alan Fakley said: “This exciting plan features a free-to-use public park and gardens with a children’s park, outdoor exercise yard, informal cycle lanes and BMX pump track.

“There will also be a floodlit multi-use games area available for hire.

“In what has been a troubled year, the trust is determined to give the people of Peterhead something to look forward too.”

The plans, drawn up by Mintlaw firm Baxter Design, will be available for the public to view on the trust’s website and social media pages.

They include a Victorian-themed pavilion for community use and tree-lined cycle paths.

Work could begin on the estimated £1 million-plus revamp once stakeholders and funders are found – and if the proposals find favour with Aberdeenshire Council planners.

Trust chairwoman, Peterhead councillor Dianne Beagrie, added: “We are very excited to bring phase two of this project forward.

“During lockdown, the team at PACT have engaged with and supported many of the groups in the town and built up really strong relationships within the community.

“The project will give the town a much-needed green space and provide something for everyone, no matter what age group you fall into.”
