Residents’ appreciation of their local park was clear for all to see at an annual community gathering in Stenhousemuir.

The eighth Love the Lido saw dozens of children, parents and grandparents flock to Crownest Park for a family fun day focused on celebrating and learning about the wildlife and natural habitat at the much-loved asset.

Held last Saturday, the event featured an array of animals and activities.

Plenty of pooches entered a dog show, while there were also owls and even meerkats there to soak in the party atmosphere.

Organisers laid on bouncy castles, dancers, stunt bikers, a face painting stall, an ice cream van and a hidden painted rock challenge.

Police, fire crews and action mascots also gladly accepted an invitation to the fun-filled day.

A pondlife interactive workshop and a birds of prey demonstration attracted a steady stream of visitors throughout the event.

Love the Lido organisers thanked all guests who turned out to show their support.
