About Figgate Friends

The Figgate Park is a hidden gem nestled in the East of Edinburgh that plays host to some wonderful wildlife thanks to it’s diverse range of habitats including areas of woodland, pond, burn, hedge and meadow that provide food and shelter for many species.

The Friends of Figgate Park is a group of volunteers who all share a love of the Park and its wildlife. We organise park clean ups, general gardening and planting days and initiate conservation and community projects in the park. Figgy Kids in a monthly meet up for pre-schoolers that runs throughout the year and we are currently looking for funding to run some free kids activities in the school holidays. You can find information about upcoming events here, and learn more about our previous projects here.

Your Park Needs You!

Volunteering makes a huge difference to Figgate Park. We’re always looking for people to get involved, so if you use the park and would like to know more about how you could help then please get in touch.

Visit our Localgiving page if you would like to support the Friends Group with a donation. We apply to small funds for some projects we action but having money in the bank available for various expenses such as insurance, materials, small repairs, plants, bulbs, wildflower seed & plugs, bird food etc is a huge help to the group.

For the past three years we have also produced a Wildlife calendar as a fundraiser to help support our activities in the Figgate Park and we are planning another for 2020 which will be on sale from the end of October.
