West Pilton Park

Ongoing community engagement work in West Pilton Park has involved events and activities for a range of groups in the local area, in addition to other ELGT programmes that use the park

Local families and primary school pupils have enjoyed a number of organised events that have encouraged use of the park and developed links with their greenspace.

ELGT staff ran a number of community events which included bat walks, circus skills workshop, litter clearance & surveys, bulb planting and woodland activities.
