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 regular park clean ups and general gardening and planting days, we run regular activities for children, and we initiate conservation and community projects in the park.   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.

If you would you like to make a donation to the Friends Group to help support our activities then that would be hugely appreciated. We apply for various small funds for some of our projects but having money in the bank available for things like insurance, materials, small repairs, extra plants, bird food etc is a huge help to the group. Find out how to support our work by emailing us at friends@figgatepark.org.uk
