West Princes Street Gardens is one of the most cherished public green spaces in Scotland, loved by locals and visitors alike. However, over the past few decades due to increasing budget pressures the money available to invest in the facilities has decreased and as a result the Garden’s infrastructure has suffered.

West Princes Street Gardens is one of the most beautiful and celebrated city-centre green spaces, offering a backdrop unparalleled anywhere in the world. The careful design of new infrastructure, set within a new holistic vision for the garden, will not only enhance the aspects of the Gardens that people have come to love but offer improvements which will enhance the experience of everyone who wishes to use them.
