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 Harrison Park will not only continue to be of 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 Friends of Harrison Park, community groups and local residents.
