Action Marine Park is a community group aiming to restore this once popular recreational area to its former glory.
In years gone by the park boasted tennis courts, a bowling green, pitch and putt and other amenities housed in a pavillion. It was a busy facility that was enjoyed by families of Lossiemouth and beyond.
Over the years the park was not maintained and eventually all that remained were the delapidated tennis courts.
Action Marine Park was formed in 2011 by a small group of people passionate in retaining the park and to bring it back to life.
Charitable status was gained in 2013 and the group initially worked to raise the profile of the park within the expanding local community.
Fun days, coffee mornings, ceilidhs and tennis coaching have been organised and enjoyed to not only raise the profile of the park but to raise initilal funds to make urgent repairs required to make the park a safe place to visit and play.
In 2014 the group worked with members of the community with a passion for tennis and the Lossiemouth Tennis Club was formed. The club is now entering its second year and has been fundamental in supporting the work of Action Marine Park. It was with great excitement that the summer of 2015 was started with not only clean courts but a brand new fence and netting, secured by funding applications made by AMP.
In 2015 AMP (Action Marine Park) became a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation) in line with the Scottish Charity Regulator recommendations SCIO SCO43530
AMP will continue to apply for funding and progress the development of the park, consulting with the public at every opportunity.
