Our play trail is taking shape. During the week, the various play sites are well used by our regular groups from Craiglockhart Primary, Corner House Nursery and Little Monkeys Nursery. In the school holidays, they are joined by groups of children from the holiday play schemes at George Watsons School and Craiglockhart Leisure Centre. More and more families with young children are playing in the woods and on the play trail sites on weekends.
Our living willow pirate ship ( ‘The Salty Dog’ ) is greening up nicely. The mast will be raised very soon. The Skull and Crossbones flag will fly at the top of Craiglockhart Pond! Seating will be provided near to ‘The Salty Dog’ and at the other end of the play trail at the Craiglockhart Terrace entrance. Along the trail, we plan also to install also a bike rack, a small raised bed with some native herbs and a ‘Magpost’ to help children with their nature studies.
