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.
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).
We carry out planting sessions – shrubs & bulbs.
We organise clean-ups.
We undertake simple gardening & weeding sessions.
We remove graffiti from painted surfaces.
We distribute two newsletters a year.
We are members of the Edinburgh Green Space Forum.
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.
