What should be in Portobello’s new park?

Posted on: August 19th, 2015

Portobello High School site – new park consultation 

A new park is to be created in Portobello once the new high school is built and the old one demolished. But what should be in the new park?

Edinburgh and Lothians Greenspace Trust is gathering local views and you can have your say too. Take the survey 


To get ideas, suggestions and thoughts about the design and layout of the new park, over the coming few months Edinburgh &Lothians Greenspace Trust will be running consultation sessions across the Portobello & Craigmillar and the Craigentinny & Duddingston Neighbourhood Partnership areas.

Our aim is to reach as wide a cross section of the community as possible, and to get as many thoughts and ideas as we can about what the new park might look like and contain.

Some events/activities have been booked already, and will be being promoted soon, others we will be arranging shortly. If you would like to arrange an event, or for us to attend a community event/meeting etc, please do not hesitate to contact us.

As we go along, we will be promoting the events that we will be attending, and how everyone can get involved.

We will be sending out periodic emails, but you can also follow us on Twitter, on Facebook and by signing up to follow the website so that you are automatically notified of new content and news.


The new park’s website is: http://newparkforeh15.com/
The Twitter account is: @EH15_NewPark
The Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/newparkEH15?ref=hl

However people take part, we will make sure that every suggestion and idea is logged and taken on board – there will be a chance to look at some draft final designs and have your say before a final design is chosen.

Hopefully it will be a busy few months – please do not hesitate to contact us, especially with regards ensuring that as many people as possible have the opportunity to take part. Any feedback is gladly received.


Many thanks
