About Inverleith Park

Inverleith Park , Stockbridge and Canonmills EH3 5PA
Inverleith Park Website

At 22 hectares or 54 acres, it is one of Scotland’s largest urban parks.

The park once formed part of the Inverleith Estate, which had been owned by the Rocheid family since 1665. The City fathers bought the land from Carl Rocheid in 1889 and laid out the park, including playing fields, tree-lined walk-ways and a sizeable pond. The north west quadarant of the park was later given over to allotments, small gardens which are rented by the city to local residents for growing fruit and vegetables.

Most of the park is still open parkland, used as recreational space and for rugby, football, cricket, baseball and other sports.

The park also features a children’s play park, four tennis courts, a ball court for basketball and football, a petanque court, and a running and fitness circuit.

The boating pond on the south side of the Park has recently been upgraded, with the western end of the pond turned into an attractive wetlands water garden in 2007.

There is also a Rose Garden and wild flower garden with stunning views of the city skyline and the Pentland Hills.
