How To Get Here

The Park is located approximately one mile south of Morningside Junction, just off the A702 (at Comiston Road/Pentland Terrace). It is well-served by public transport, and on-street parking is available adjacent to the Park.

Bus routes
Lothian Bus services 11 and 15, run along Comiston Road/Pentland Terrace; Services 5 and 16 run along Greenbank Crescent. For timetables see (opens in a new window).


There is plenty of parking space along Comiston Road/Pentland Terrace. Greenbank Crescent, especially near the north gate into the Park, is much more congested and not recommended. It is, however, possible to park further along the Crescent nearer the Fly Walk and the south gate entrances, but the path in via Fly Walk is stepped. There is space for parking on Comiston Springs Road, at the south end of the Park.

Walking routes
Part of the route of the Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Road to Swanston and the Pentlands” runs through the Park, linking Greenbank and Cockmylane. The “Road” leads walkers via green lanes and relatively quiet streets between the City and the foothills of the Pentlands, from where many walking routes can be planned.

The Park is connected to Liberton by way of the track through the Hermitage of Braid, following the Braid Burn. The more adventurous can take the route over the top of the Braid Hills, which connects to the Park via Riselaw Avenue and Comiston Springs Road.
