Edinburgh values its reputation as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, renowned for its setting, history and built heritage. Parks and greenspaces are integral to this. They serve as a stage for our public lives and are settings where celebrations are held, where social exchanges take place, where friends mix, where cultures run into each other, where nature thrives, and where people revive themselves from the stresses of urban living.
In recent years new initiatives have been implemented to ensure St Margaret’s Park will not only continue to be of historical value, but is developed and improved to add to the quality of life for the local community and visitors alike. It would not be possible to achieve this goal without the continued partnership working with Corstorphine Community Council, community groups and local residents.
The City of Edinburgh Council aims to encourage and maximise the use of St Margaret’s Park for everyone, so that we can:
• Make community planning a reality
• Move towards an inclusive society
• Making Edinburgh a safer and healthier place
• Deliver better education, training and lifelong learning
• Develop a quality and sustainable environment
• Secure prosperity and manage growth
