The tarmacked area in Harrison Park East used to be part of the childrens playground enclosure before it was upgraded and reduced in size.
At the moment the area is used by the Merchiston Club as a car park. We’re not sure if Merchiston Club has specific permission from Edinburgh Council to use this area as a car park and are looking in to this.
The use of a car park is at odd’s with the aims of Harrison Park and we’re looking in to redeveloping this area. Current ideas include
- Cycle training – area marked out with junctions, roundabouts etc
- Outdoor play area with sandpit, water features etc for young children
- Parkour obstacle course
If you have any other suggestions for this area of the park please get in touch with us.
