If you want to know about what’s happening in Hailes Quarry Park, you can now check out the latest events and activities on Facebook.
The park also has a steering group which meets quarterly to hear about what’s happening in the park and to give feedback. At the last meeting the group discussed the new wetlands area which had struggled a bit with the very dry summer, an issue this area of the park doesn’t usually face! Edinburgh and Lothian Greenspace Trust and the council are also looking at the potential of a path that leads to the wetland area to improve access. The Steering Group also heard about summer holiday activities that were organised for a variety of local groups and discussed upcoming events including a potential bird walk at the end of November. The Steering Group is keen to collect photos of the park and are planning to organise a photography competition through the Facebook page.
The next meeting is on Wednesday 31st October and the group are keen to have more local residents involved. If you would like to come along phone Abby on 0131 445 4025.
