Background Roseburn Park is in the shadow of the Murrayfield Rugby stadium. One of its attractive features is the Water of Leith which runs along its north edge. There is a childrens play area and football and cricket are both played on the park.
History and heritage Roseburn came into the ownership of the old Edinburgh Corporation in two parts: the first acquisition of 10.33 acres, part of the lands of Roseburn, was in 1898 from Edward Balfour, Esq., of Balbirnie and others, on the basis that it would be used for all time as a public park. The later purchase of 5.86 acres was from part of the estate of Damhead from Sir Archibald Campbell of Succoth in 1906. During World War Two, air raid shelters were located in the park and part of it was allocated to allotments.
