We are grateful to East Lothian Council for installing the MagPost in the Play Area.
You may recall that we were awarded civic pride funding for the Magpost with the aim of fostering a greater respect and understanding of the flora and fauna of the park.
We ordered the MagPost from Caledonia Play, a Scottish company whose play equipment is made using slow grown, treated timbers from sustainable managed sources.
The MagPost incorporates a scientific quality 5x magnifying glass on a hardwood post. This, along with it's accessibility makes it an ideal means for exploring the natural world and encouraging experimentation to stimulate a child's knowledge of science through play.
We would love to see how you use the MagPost - tweet us a photo (@cuthillpark)
