Saughton Park, Skateboarding Park and Glasshouse

Saughton Park at one time had a 9 hole golf course, paddling pool and playing fields. In 1908 the Scottish National Exhibition was held in the park and in 1984 the Winter Garden was opened. In 2010 the largest outdoor skateboard park in Scotland was opened and later a children’s play area. There are also football pitches and a sports stadium with a running track. Don’t miss the shoe tree where the boarders hang their shoes for luck. In the glasshouse you can see the bust of Gandhi and tropical plants. The gardens are a tranquil place to sit and contemplate. With an award winning Rose Garden, paths, walled gardens and ornamental flowers and not forgetting the glass houses where the winter garden gives the area flowers all year round.
