The park is available to any resident or visitor of Edinburgh, however the principal stakeholders and users are considered to be the residents of the Currie Community. The park sits within this community and is well used by residents from this area. The park has an active Friends Group made up of local community members and meet on a regular basis. The group is responsible for developing both the physical assets of the park, marketing and generating community interest in the usage of the park both through organised events and community participation.
