Games for the Rose Garden

The reappropriation of Craigtoun's beloved Rose Garden began in September 2022 when we made it a secure area to enable smaller children and children with special needs to experience a little freedom in the park, without being able to wander too far and, at that stage, we also added a gazebo to provide some shelter from the elements. Then, in October 2023, we identified this area as the perfect spot to install one of the three Communication Boards now located in the park. Having seen how well this new function for the Rose Garden has been received by our customers, it made sense to take this project to the next level by installing some sensory games too, with the help of donations received in recent months. These 4 sensory games, that are available for all to use, have been funded by generous donations received from Kilrymont St Andrews Rotary, the Rotary Club of St Andrews, the Rotary Club of Cupar and private donor and supporter of Craigtoun, Mrs Margaret Wood.

We were delighted to have the new function of the Rose Garden highlighted in the latest edition of The Saint St Andrews, which you can read here.

Jan's Story

Hello, I’m Jan and I’m a volunteer for Friends of Craigtoun. I have been coming to St. Andrews on holiday with my family since I was a toddler and a highlight was always our visits to Craigtoun Park

Eric's Story

Several years ago, I was advised to attend an NHS sponsored fitness class in Cupar as I had health problems and it was there that I met Tom, a volunteer at Craigtoun Country Park, and Kyff Roberts, who was the Chairman of the Friends of Craigtoun Country Park.  I live just five minutes away from the Park in Strathkinness but had not visited the place in over 30 years.

Peggy's Story

When I heard that Craigtoun was in danger of closing and that a determined group of people were going to try and ensure that didn’t happen, I was only too glad to help in any way I could.  Like many people in this area, I had known and loved Craigtoun all my life and the thought of losing this gem didn’t bear thinking about.
