is a brilliant little park. It's tucked away down a little side street, and you wouldn't know it was there unless you stumbled upon it.


[ADVERT]It was planned, developed and built by local people working in partnership with Edinburgh City Council , Broughton Project Group and Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust . The goal of the project was to create an urban oasis and the result is a lovely lay out and a very tranquil atmosphere. There's a walkway built through a small rockery and herb garden, designed to improve biodiversity and 'green' appeal. Perhaps unintentionally it also provides climbing opportunities for older children.


There's plenty of variety for both littles and slightly bigger children, and on a warm day after school, it fills up with local families letting their children blow off some steam while mums and dads relax in the sun.

Despite being set-down in a little dell, it's accessible to buggies as it has a ramped entrance.


One of my favourite things about the park is that its design encourages children to work and play together: a big basket swing, a seesaw, and a pedal roundabout are all better when you're on them with someone else. Yes, I have tried them all.


The setting, layout and play equipment at this park combine to make it one of the best in the city. It's well worth a visit.
