Leith Links Play Park Upgrade Update

Leith Links CC received the latest update from the city council on the new play park equipment

I’d just like to give you a brief update on the Leith Links Play Park upgrade.  If you’ve passed by recently you’ll have seen that works are progressing well with new equipment installed, surfacing work beginning and play sand in place.  The overall programme is nearing completion with the site to receive a wet surface pour this week. Completion will see some tar work to seal the surface and the installation of a new gate.

I hope that you’ll agree that the park is looking really exciting with local kids keen to get in and start playing. Edinburgh Lothians and Greenspace Trust who will be confirming the completion date and assisting us to organise a launch event at the play park as soon as possible. We’ll ensure that we keep you updated as the plans for this event progress.

Leith Links Community Workshop – Parklife project

Later this year the ParkLife project (a collaboration between City of Edinburgh Council and University of Edinburgh) is coming to Leith Links!

Everyone who uses or has an interest in Leith Links is welcome to attend this community workshop to find out more about the project & what it means for Leith Links. This is also an opportunity to feed into the work of the project moving forward.

The workshop is being held on Monday 1 April 2019 from 6pm in Leith Community Centrefollow this link to book your seat.

The ParkLife project is looking at how new uses of data and technology can help us understand how people use and value parks. The aim is to support the city and park partners to work together to improve parks to benefit everyone. The project includes the installation of a wifi enabled model which park users can engage with, should they wish to do so.

The workshop will give you an opportunity to share and develop your ideas about ways Leith Links can be improved and how technology might be able to help. During the workshop we will design several ‘prototypes’ that could be built and installed in Leith Links. These can be anything from a digital notice board that provides information about park activities to a system for timing yourself running a mile.

You don’t need to have prior understanding of technology in order to be able to join. You just need to be a person who cares about parks! Your views are important and will directly contribute to the project. Parks are diverse spaces and we would like to hear from as many people as possible.
