Here are our current surveys that you can use to tell us what you think about our parks and greenspace

What is your vision for Edinburgh's parks and green spaces in 2050?

Edinburgh’s parks, green spaces, rivers, lochs and shoreline have never been so important to us and Edinburgh’s Thriving Green Spaces Project is developing a 30-year strategy and action plan for these.

Please take 5-10 minutes to tell us what your own aspirations are for our parks and green spaces. Your thoughts and ideas will be used to help us develop the ambitious new vision for Edinburgh’s natural environment. This survey will run throughout 2021.
