This park has quickly become one of my favourites. There's always people around but it doesn't feel over crowded or too busy. There's tons of room to run, bring your dog, and picnic (weather permitting). Not to mention the views of the city will take your breath away.

I love walking in this my local park. The view up the avenue of trees is stunning- ever-changing throughout the seasons. The views of Edinburgh skyline across the pond always make me appreciate this city and it's a brilliant place to watch the fireworks. There's a lot of interest in the pond wildlife- you might see a heron, cootes, moorhens,... More

Large open space with views to the Royal Mile on the horizon. Relaxed family atmosphere. Cricket being played on a hot Saturday in August. Lovely for a stroll, to let kids run wild, or just for some quiet meditation.

This is close to where we live so we come here quite a bit. Nice place to relax on a warm day. The pond is really nice, too.

Inverleith park, a great escape from the city & easily to lose an hour of two of your time. It also seems Fido the dog is super intellectual and likes too write notes for his master !! Yes, bag it & bin it master, but not in a children's play park. This really made my day. Well-done Fido for shaming... More

The pond area ia beautiful and often you get to watch miniature boat races. If you sit on the hill overlooking the pond you can enjoy incredible... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
