Seven Acre Park, as the name suggests, is 7 acres in size and consists of two main sections – one accessed via Stanydykehead and the other via Netherbank View. The park is sited on former farmland and was adopted by Edinburgh Council around 1999
The park has exceptional views over to Fife and many of Edinburgh landmarks including Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, Blackford Observatory and, on a good day, the Bass Rock can be seen in the distance.
It is a wonderful place to sit in the summer months or just to relax and take in the countryside feel the park provides in the middle of Edinburgh. The play area, which includes basketball nets, is very popular with local children and their parents. The park also has picnic tables, football goals, multi-gym and seats dotted about to take in the scenery. The park also boasts a signposted woodland walk.
