Work has begun carving a bench out of a log to be installed in Roseburn Park to mark the park’s new beginnings following the Flood Prevention Scheme. The bench is being organised by Friends of Roseburn Park and is sponsored by Murrayfield Community Council and the City Council’s West Neighbourhood Partnership. The work is being undertaken by Four Winds Edinburgh.
We have been given 1000 Daffodil bulbs and these need to be planted quickly in the park. Can you help?
We have organised a ‘drop in’ event starting 10 a.m. through to 3.30 p.m. on Sunday 17th December at the Armoury building.
While some gardening tools are available, it would help if you could bring your own. Tools such as spade, trowel or dibber would be useful. Bring friends and family. All ages welcome including accompanied children.
on the bench immediately north of the new bund/mound (up from the old play park).

The Quiet Route 8 Cycle improvements in Roseburn Park are now out for consultation by the Council. You can find it all in the link below and as ever we think lots of people should have a say (it’s open until 25 Nov): https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/…/de…/consult_view/
Some comments already to be found here: Council consultation on park cycling management
The Council will shortly commence a consultation on a proposal for the management of cycling/walking in the park.
At the FoRP AGM there was concern that just splitting the path might lead to cyclists going faster and dogs and toddlers not observing the split. However the blind spot by the toilet block needed attention.
In discussion with the Council the idea of a 3-month trial to split cyclists and walkers only around the central area was suggested, with cyclists “give way” signs on either side of the blindspot.
Bakers of all ages produced 36 cakes:
