The popular Great Saughton Easter Teddy Bear Hunt will take place this Saturday, 4 April in Saughton Park.
Thirty teddies will be hidden throughout the grounds, with prizes awarded to the children who manage to track down all the bears. There will also be lots of art and craft activities and storytelling at what is sure to be a fun day for all the family.
The hunt will start at 12 noon in the Park’s Winter Gardens and children of all ages are welcome to take part.
The last Teddy Bear Hunt attracted hundreds of people and organisers are hoping that this weekend’s event will be every bit as popular.
Environment Convener, Councillor Lesley Hinds, said:
This is a fantastic day out and a great example of the many events and activities that take place in Edinburgh’s parks throughout the year.
We are very lucky to have so many wonderful outdoor spaces and I would encourage people to visit their local parks and make the most of them over the Easter holidays.
The event will also be an opportunity for people to take part in the Saughton Park Consultation, which closes on the 6 April. The historic park is set to undergo a £5.3m renovation to restore some its original 17th century features and members of the public are being asked to comment on the proposed master plan.
Questionnaires will be available at the Bear Hunt and can also be found online.
