It's difficult to say too much about a park, apart from the fact that I enjoy it every time I visit. When the sun shines it becomes alive with games of softball, or cricket, or hundreds of individuals chasing balls or frisbees. Dog walkers find...More

Stockbridge is a great neighborhood, with shops and bars and restaurants. The Botanical Garden is very close as well. The park has a garden, sports fields, children playground, hills and offers a view to the castle.

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s

fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
