We held our launch event on Sunday 2nd July- and we’re also hoping to find out what park users would like us to focus on next in our survey.
The video showing all the work carried out lasts 10 minutes can be viewed below:

The event was covered in the Evening News at https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/news/people/edinburgh-roseburn-park-years-of-work-by-volunteers-transfom-derelict-toilet-block-into-community-cafe-4203889 and in the Edinburgh Reporter at https://theedinburghreporter.co.uk/2023/07/grand-opening-of-rosebean-cafe/
Friends of Roseburn Park (FoRP) asked residents in 2016 what they’d like to see in the park. Since then we’ve helped deliver some of the things residents wanted– the toilet block conversion to a café, the log bench, a better new play park, a new mural, new trees, BBQ slabs and benches and so on. We now want to refresh that vision. For that we need your help!
We are distributing 2,500 paper survey forms to the homes around Roseburn Park. We are also collecting views on the same questions online at tinyurl.com/roseburnparksurvey .
Can you let us know what you think of the ideas we’ve put forward– and add any you think we need to consider? We’ll use your feedback as the basis for grant applications.
We look forward to answering your questions at the launch, to which we’d like you to bring your completed forms to. If you can’t make it, please drop your forms through the Armoury door letterbox opposite, at 13c Riversdale Crescent before 13th August, please.
We’ll email out the survey results to FoRP members– it’s free to join us; do so on our website at www.friendsofroseburnpark.org.uk/join-for-free
