Little France: New Edinburgh park

With the arrival of the new BioQuarter and a range of other new developments, some under construction with others at various stages of the planning process, the plan is the new park will provide a valuable green asset to new and existing communities.

Central to the plans is high-quality cycle/walking route through the park to form a strategic active travel link connecting to/extending the city's cycle network. Read more...

The existing landscape features will be enhanced or extended, including wetland habitats, woodland planting, meadow grassland and space for events or informal sports. There is also the possibility of including amenites such as play play parks or well-designed natural play facilities.

Thanks to funding from Trees For Cities, The Scottish Government and The European Union 7000 trees have been planted. We had help to plant the trees from 232 volunteers involving 8 groups which included Peoples Postcode Lottery, Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, school groups and other members of the local community.
