MP Corri Wilson joined guests and team members to officially open the new bar and restaurant at Turnberry Holiday Park near Girvan following a £200,000 development at the park.
The visit was organised as part of Scottish Tourism Week to celebrate the vibrancy and quality of tourism in Scotland. Ms Wilson was taken on a tour of Turnberry Park by General Manager Lee Elliott to see how the park has spent almost £1 million over four years to build a new indoor pool and sauna; improve electrical infrastructure and drainage, and add new caravan pitches to increase its capacity.
This year’s substantial redevelopment of the bar and restaurant has allowed Turnberry Park to improve the interior space and open up views across to the magnificent Ailsa Craig for the first time.
Helping Ms Wilson cut the ribbon to open the new Ailsa Craig Bar & Restaurant was Jan Parkes, who has owned a caravan at Turnberry Park for more than 40 years.
MP Corri Wilson said: ““Bridge Leisure have made a significant investment here and the improvements the team have made are fantastic. I am sure the new facilities will be enjoyed both by new visitors and those who return year after year.”
Lee Elliott, Turnberry Park General Manager said: “The staycation trend has seen both holiday bookings and holiday home ownership grow, and we think that 2017 is going to be a record-breaking year.”
