Pittencrieff Park - HLF Parks for People

One of the peacocks that live in Pittencrief Park Pittencrieff Park, in central Dunfermline, is a beautiful wooded park which was gifted to the people of Dunfermline by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1902. The park covers 76 acres and is home to a museum, lily ponds, formal gardens and glasshouses, an events venue, play areas and is home to a number of peacocks.

GVA RGA has been working with Fife Council over the last year to prepare a bid for funding through the HLF’s ‘Parks for People’ programme, which offers grants for green spaces designed for informal recreation and enjoyment.

Our initial work for the bid comprised a programme of consultations with the park’s stakeholders, surveying local residents and profiling the local market, to inform an indicative Audience Development Plan to identify potential target audiences, with the ultimate aim of encouraging more people to make use of the park.

GVA RGA would like to pass on our congratulations to Fife Council and the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust on the successful pass of the Stage 1 Heritage Lottery Fund Parks for People bid. GVA RGA is very happy to have been part of the team that helped to achieve this, particularly as this is the first park in Scotland to receive an award.
