Water of Leith Path Upgrade

Water of Leith Path Upgrade

Improved access along a strategic route to enable people of all abilities to be more active.

Improved access along a strategic route to enable people of all abilities to be more active.

The Water of Leith walkway is much-loved route for people walking, wheeling and cycling but as a regular user I know it can be muddy and less accessible in places. These upgrades will be transformative, helping even more people to enjoy the path as part of our excellent network of off-road routes spanning the city or perhaps just to visit the fantastic Colinton Tunnel mural. Once the walkway improvements are complete, lighting will be installed on the Spylaw Park section by the Council’s Parks and Green space team to encourage people in west Colinton to use this walking route into the village.
