An outdoor gym will be built on the banks of the River Ericht.
Perth and Kinross Council officials confirmed they will project manage the installation of outdoor gym equipment at the riverside in Blairgowrie and Rattray.
Building the gym is the first part of a wider plan to transform the town’s riverside area.
Outdoor gym equipment, which allows passers-by to do a range of strength and conditioning exercises, will be installed next to the children’s play area near the river.
If volunteers raise sufficient funds, more equipment will go in the Cuttle Burn area.
A spokesperson from the Riverside Venture Group said: “This commitment from the council means that the project will go ahead but a lot of it depends on how much money we are able to raise.
“The council is looking at an installation date of early next year, so we have until the end of this year to raise as much money as possible to ensure that we are able to provide the best possible facilities for the town.
“We are hopeful that once people have seen what we can achieve, they will want to get involved with further developments.”
Councillor Bob Brawn said: “These are marvellous plans to enhance the area of Blairgowrie and I’m sure Perth and Kinross Council will want to support them wherever possible.”
