28sep11:00 am3:00 pmGranton Castle Walled Garden Doors Open Day


Event Details

An opportunity to visit Granton’s very own ‘secret’ garden hidden away on Edinburgh’s waterfront. The Walled Garden was once attached to Granton Castle, which was built in the late 15th century, rebuilt in 1544, refurbished in the 17th century, and finally demolished in 1921. The Walled Garden survived and was cultivated across the centuries. Volunteers have been working since May 2017 to transform the overgrown space into a beautiful and publicly accessible area for locals and visitors alike to enjoy.

Global Connections: Look out for displays which provide information about plant origins and garden history around the world.
Activities: Children’s activities and musical recitals will be featured throughout the afternoon, accompanied by refreshments. Visual displays are located throughout the garden, and stewards will be awaiting visitors at key points to provide information.
Free parking available on West Shore Road. Morrison’s car park is a short walk away. Note that there is no parking on Caroline Park Avenue.
