Edinburgh Waterfront

A new park, Forthquarter Park, is being built at Edinburgh Waterfront to the north of the new Telford College complex on a strip of land running to the west from a point close to the new Scottish Gas Headquarters.

The Park

The park includes:

-  a quarry pond with viewing platform for observing wildlife.  The pond was previously used by Scottish Gas to provide a source of water for use in the event of a fire.

Not Yet Open

The park is currently, at May 2006, part of the Waterfront Development Site, so has not yet been open to the public - except for a single day for Edinburgh Parks & Gardens Open Day on May 6, 2006.

The park is expected to be opened to the public during 2006 or 2007.
