Saughton Park Playground Consultation

Closed 24 Apr 2016

Opened 22 Mar 2016

Results expected 31 May 2016


The City of Edinburgh Council would like to improve the Saughton Park playground and will be applying for grant funding to carry out this necessary work.

The consultation carried out in March 2015 on proposals for the wider park suggested that only just over half (58.2%) of you who took part believed the playground was good or very good and three quarters of respondents (76.7%) felt that the playground should be enlarged. Some of your suggestions included facilities for children with disabilities, greater provision for under 5’s and more adventurous play and natural play.

Taking your feedback into account we have developed outline proposals which aim to provide enhanced play opportunities for children of different ages and abilities, with a strong focus on making the playground more inclusive and accessible for all to enjoy.


Why We Are Consulting

We would value your feedback on these outline proposals before we develop detailed and fully costed plans to support our grant applications.
Let us know what you think by taking a few minutes to complete this survey.
No individual will be identifiable and your answers will be used for research purposes only and treated in the strictest confidence.
There are a number of staffed events detailing the concept proposal drawings along with information about the project which will be exhibited in the Saughton Park Winter Gardens. Details of these events are on the right hand side of this page under "Key Dates".
There is also an unstaffed exhibition in the Saughton Park Winter Garden on Tuesday 22 March to Sunday 24 April. Opening hours vary for the unstaffed exhibition - see Park Notice Boards for current opening hours .
