A spokesperson for Sustrans said: “We would like to reassure the community the play park is still going ahead. The planning application was withdrawn due to planning restrictions associated with a nearby pipeline.

"We have identified another location on the Bo’ness Foreshore and are in the process of submitting a new planning application.”

Plans stated the play area would have featured a sunken barge, stilt posts, wobbly bridge, balance beam, hop logs and a roundabout.
