Long before it became a public park, the land now encompassing Saughton Park and Gardens was part of the ancient Saughton Estate and its historic mansion house.
Perhaps harder to imagine is that in 1908, over 3 and half million people visited the park to see spectacular Scottish National Exhibition which included exhibition halls, concert hall, model railway and even gondolas.
Visitors today can enjoy landscaped gardens, a lovely rose garden and winter garden, children's play area and skate park.
A Friends group was formed in 2014 with a view to restoring the park to its former glory.
