Leith Links Activity Hub

Closes 21 Oct 2023

Opened 6 Sep 2023


In summer 2022, we consulted on the masterplan for Leith Links. We received 789 responses about the masterplan with nearly 70% of people stating that they lived in Leith.  Overall, 90% of respondents thought that the proposals detailed in the Masterplan were positive. 

We are now at the stage of taking forward development plans as outlined within the masterplan. This includes redesigning the disused bowling greens into an Activity Hub and transforming the pavilion into a café, toilet and community space.

The masterplan consultation showed the vast majority were in favour of transforming part of the bowling green area into a skatepark which would also incorporate biodiversity enhancements.

To ensure development and designs suit a range of user groups, we welcome feedback, opinions and suggestions on all feasible proposals which would comprise this activity hub.

Once we have received feedback to determine which designs to take forward, we will secure funding to begin development. The basis of this timeline therefore depends on these funding opportunities.
