New Boardwalk

Hailes Quarry Park

Fri 24 November 2017

Thanks to funding from Postcode Local Trust and the City of Edinburgh Council, we have been able to develop the wetland area at Hailes Quarry Park. We've improved access to the area by building a boardwalk and pond dipping platform. Groups of people will now be able to visit the park to experience and learn about nature.

An extensive programme of planting is planned for the next few months, involving a range of wetland plant species.  This will create a habitat which, once established, will become home to birds and even amphibians as well as a host of native wetland plants. As the park is situated next to the Union Canal, the wetland area will be a valuable part of the green corridor either side of the towpath and the banks of the canal.

Official opening on November 24th with Councillor Denis Dixon & pupils from Longstone Primary School
