Murieston Park Playground

{Edinburgh} Murieston Park Playground

I photographed another playground for you today. Murieston Park is a playground we’ve been to in the past with the kids, but I didn’t take any photos that time. It’s located in the Gorgie/ Dalry area of Edinburgh, south west of the city centre. The small community park has an open lawn area, with the fenced in playground occupying one corner of the park. In the middle of a residential area, the park is surrounded by Murieston Terrace, Road, Place and Crescent.

As the playground is fairly small and best suited for toddlers, we’ll probably not be back here again, so when I passed it today on the way back from a doctor’s appointment I thought I’d take the chance to capture it for completeness sake. It’s a perfect wee park to take little ones to if you live or stay in this part of the city, and as such gets a thumbs up from us, but it’s fair to say it’s not a park worth travelling across town for especially.
