Victoria Park's Bowling Greens

Closes 8 Jun 2024

Opened 24 Apr 2024


The Thriving Green Spaces team in City of Edinburgh Council are currently developing proposals for unused Bowling Greens in parks throughout the city. This includes Victoria Park’s bowling greens. 

The team has delivered several consultation sessions. Drawing from this feedback, we have developed several ideas for how these spaces could be improved and re-integrated back into the park. Our landscape architects have visually developed these ideas further, and at this stage the City of Edinburgh Council is asking for feedback on these ideas to help refine future proposals.  

The re-opening and improvements of these spaces will provide significant value to the local community, benefitting people who live in or work in the area, as well as those travelling through. 

Why your views matter

We have worked with communities and landscape architects to prepare several ideas for reusing these areas. Now we need your input to refine these ideas. We aim for any improvements to the bowling green spaces to maximise health and wellbeing benefits for local communities. We need to hear your views so that we can incorporate them into plan proposals.
