West Port Garden

Door open days

24 September 2017 (12.00 - 16.00)


The West Port Garden opened in 1910, inspired by pioneer ecologist Patrick Geddes, whose vision was to create green spaces among the Old Town slums, where children could play safely and experience the natural world through gardening.

A century on, after years of neglect, local residents are renewing Geddes? vision by creating a green space for everyone to enjoy, terraces on the steeply sloping site provide flower gardens, vegetable plots and play areas for children.
