Prior to 2006, the park only consisted of the burn, some trees and the grass area. Following community consultation, work began to improve the park in August 2006. A new asphalt footpath replaced the old whin-dust path and new street lighting was installed.
Since then over 250,000 natural bulbs have been planted along with new rose and shrub beds created and the planting of over 30 new trees. To aid the amenity of the park new benches, picnic tables and bins have been installed.
In 2010 a wildflower area was created as well as the welcome addition of both a flower tub and new stone signage at the Liberton Gardens entrance. At the entrance off Captain’s Drive a new metal name signage was added to the existing metal gate.
The area next to the river is a Local Biodiversity Site and the trees form part of the Urban Forest.
There are currently no facilities listed for St Katharine’s Park.
