On the western side of Aughtie Drive is the Community Playground.
The designated disabled car parking spaces are located adjacent to the toilet block. For people with a disability the best access to the playground is via the asphalt path behind the toilet block next to the lawn bowls club. Opposite the bowling greens is a path that leads to a ramped entrance to the playground.

The ramp gives access to a tiered sitting area in the centre of the playground. The path leading directly from the main car park is not accessible.

The Community Playground is also accessible from the Middle Park light rail station. The station is fully accessible and is only a short distance from the playground.
