Our mission – to provide everyone in Edinburgh and the Lothians with access to quality greenspaces, which can help to improve their health & wellbeing

Covid-19 Update

ELGT realise that the Coronavirus pandemic is a difficult and worrying time for everyone and I can assure that we are following all the current advice and information from Health Protection Scotland and the UK and Scottish Governments.

We are really excited to be restarting some of our outdoor activities with small groups and social distancing in place. We hope to be able to bring back many more activities very soon to the local communities we serve but only when it is safe to do so. We anticipate opening our ELGT office towards the early autumn if the Scottish government’s guidelines permit.

In the meantime, we encourage everyone to visit their valuable local greenspaces. They offer you the chance to take part in daily exercise, to de-stress and engage with nature while also helping to improve your overall health and wellbeing. You can also be kept up to date through our social media pages on twitter and facebook.

I hope that this is of some reassurance to you and if there is anything else you think we could do, or if you would like to discuss things further, then please do not hesitate to get in touch through our contact page.

Since 1991 we have been working to improve greenspaces for the benefit of people through practical environmental and educational projects in partnership with local communities and health-focused initiatives as a way to support more people getting outdoors. Our projects are designed to benefit people, wildlife, landscape and heritage and to help connect people with their natural environment.

By providing a comprehensive portfolio of environmental project development, management and fundraising services, we help ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy their natural environment.


Great that so many local children got a chance to explore #littlefrancepark @PathsforAll @edinoutdoors
