St Andrew Square Gardens

Gardens open to the Public

In earlier years, St Andrew Square Gardens were owned by the banks, insurance companies and other offices around St Andrew Square and were rarely used.  But they were recently passed to the City of Edinburgh on a fifty year lease.

The city has now redeveloped the gardens, with new landscaping including a water feature as can be seen in the photograph above.  The gardens were then open to the public about a month ago (in April 2008) and have been well used to date.
