  • Whether you're walking your dog, racing your remote controlled boat, having a barbecue or just sitting down, watching the world go by, Inverlieith Park has something for you. Big enough to accommodate a lot of people, and interesting enough to keep big kids occupied, it's well worth a visit. There's even a mini assault course around the perimeter. Nestled in one of the more salubrious areas of Edinburgh, even the roads and paths to get there make a nice walk. Sitting on the banks of the boat pond you can watch as the model boaters race each other, expertly avoiding the numerous waterfowl that make the pond their home. It's also a great place to watch the Edinburgh International Festival fireworks display, and many hundreds turn out each year to enjoy them.
  • One of the best parks in Edinburgh its fantastic to walk around. Excellent place to see the bells in at New Year as locals gather on the hill overlooking the pond for a clear view of the castle fireworks. Perfect if you're not into elbow hockey with the crowds on Princess St.
  • With a pond, flower garden, play ground, and athletic fields, this is the perfect place to take a run or a quiet stroll. The pond has a nice little wetland area you can walk through along a boardwalk, with bright purple flowers in late summer. The different areas are divided by hedges, keeping them peaceful and quiet.
  • Was excellent for our 2yo who loves his balance bike. Play area great and clean. Pond really nice as a change.
  • Fabulous green park in the city with fabulous views and a great pond. Good play park but it can be very busy. Assorted playing fields and fitness equipment.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
