As you know, this park was once used by us regularly as a safe enclosed area where we could do training and have fun with the Bruff's Bark Band. Historically it was the football grounds for Spartans FC, but it was also great green area in the midst of the city. Recently it has been proposed that it will be used for housing development - in an already crowded area.
It has been a few months since any construction looked to be under way; the park now looks like a war has taken place in it, as there is debris left all over from the old football barrier - which seems to be destroyed for no reason - to general rubbish and tire marks. Thus making the area unsafe and unwelcoming.
Save City Park is an action group put together to help propose the idea that City Park should be saved and returned to it's former glory as a recreational area. There is an online petition, flyers and template letters to be sent to councillors and MSP's; in the hope that minds will change it the area to be saved.
Please help us spread the word of Save City Park, as this is an essential area for everyone in the area and for the shrinking green areas in Edinburgh.
