Craigtoun Country Park
CRAIGTOUN COUNTRY PARK IS ONE OF ST ANDREWS MOST LOVED ATTRACTIONS, CHERISHED BY THE COMMUNITY, YOUNG AND OLD ALIKE, WHO USE IT TO RUN, WALK, PICNIC AND PLAY
In 2012 the voluntary group Friends of Craigtoun was set up to work in partnership with Fife Council to secure the future of the park as a community amenity. Since then the group has taken on the task of looking for ways to maintain and improve the park. From bringing back the old with plans to restore the iconic Dutch Village to ringing in the new with progressive developments to play equipment, the group continually raises funds and looks for support from organisations such as the Community Trust.
Kyffin Roberts, Chairman of the Friends of Craigtoun Park said:
‘We are huge supporters of the St Andrews Community Trust. To date we have made five applications and have had assistance with refurbishing train sheds, CCTV and accessible play equipment.
The most recent contribution has allowed us to purchase a new utility vehicle for the park, which will be invaluable in our objective to efficiently run all the facilities at Craigtoun Country Park and continue to restore it as a “Jewel in the Crown” in Fife and the surrounding area.’
