Two points are of particular relevance in the Park;

a) Dog Owners should always clean up after their dogs have pooped and deposit the poop bags in the nearest bin, which is City of Edinburgh Council’s policy, as there are no dedicated Poop Bins in Edinburgh. Poop bags should never be thrown into the Burn or the bushes.

b) Cyclists should look out for pedestrians especially when approaching from behind them. Give an aural warning in good time and slow down when passing them.
