Four potential locations have been identified in Prestonpans for a pump track as shown on the map. All of the sites are council-owned and would be subject to planning permission:
- Preston Crescent
- Cemetery Park
- Cuthill Park
1 Preston Crescent
Preston Crescent offers a large area of open space with existing play facilities on site. Trees and the road provide a natural barrier to housing while remaining visible and good access and parking are available. The location is on the outskirts of town.
2 Cemetery Park
Close to Preston Lodge High School, Cemetery Park has existing play and multi-use games area on site. The large open space is in a central location although has limited parking and is close to houses and the cemetery.
3 Cuthill Park
Cuthill Park has existing play on the site however the large slope limits space available and it is close to existing houses and the bowling club.
With extensive parking on site and good connectivity to active travel routes, Meadowmill offers enough space for a potentially larger site. It would not be overlooked by housing or residents however it's location outwith the town centre and proximity to trees and the Battlefield site may need consideration.
What do you think of the possible sites? Is there anything else we should consider? Do you have a preference? What do you think about pump tracks?
