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, a shallow pond (but not filled with water when this photo was taken on a fine summer afternoon in July 2009.  The gardens are now open to the public and include a coffee stall and seating near the NE corner of the gardens.
