What we do

Liase

We liaise as necessary with Parks & Greenspace staff, and other relevant departments within the City of Edinburgh Council regarding issues such as maintenance, litter, graffiti, provision & design of play equipment.

We also liaise with the police as necessary regarding instances of anti-social behaviour.

Over recent years we have been involved in examining and responding as appropriate to a succession of planning application which are likely to have a significant and harmful impact on the park.

Access Funding

We access funding from a variety of sources for development of youth facilities in the park, for seating and for environmental improvements (plants, bulbs, bird boxes).

– carry out planting sessions – shrubs & bulbs
