Welcome to the new site for the Friends of Harrison Park.
The park is in the Merchiston area of Edinburgh and the site is intended to provide information on all aspects of both the park and the Friends of the Park.
The Friends of Harrison Park work in partnership with the Council to oversee the management, maintenance and development of this green space. Recent projects, including upgrading of paths, interpretive signage, naturalised bulb planting, have all contributed to making Harrison Park a delightful, accessible and well used community green space.
In 2008 Harrison Park was awarded Green Flag status – one of the first flags issued in Scotland. The scheme aims to encourage safe, clean and accessible public parks which are managed in an environmentally sustainable way.
