Work starts to transform pavilion at popular playing fields
South Ayrshire Council is investing £1.36 million to improve the pavilion at King George V Playing Fields in Ayr.
Work to extend the existing pavilion has recently started, to create more space and a brand-new entrance for a fully accessible facility.
The renovations, which are due to be complete early next year, will also see the addition of eight new, large changing areas, two of which will be dedicated for referees.
Thanks to the installation of solar panels, the building will also generate its own electricity.
Councillor Ian Cochrane, Environment Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: "I am delighted this project is underway, the playing fields are very popular, so the new pavilion will make a huge difference, particularly on match days.
"With the health and wellbeing of residents more important than ever before, we continue to invest in facilities which encourage sport and exercise."
