Background
Close to the centre of the historic old town of South Queensferry, Station Road Park is an attractive, small and secluded park. Formally the property of the Earl of Roseberry the gardens are in two sections of irregular-shaped lawns with rose beds and formal bedding displays. Shrubberies, which surround the lawns, have been planted with a wide range of plants to create year round interest. It holds a Green Flag in recognition of it being a quality green space.
Wildlife
A number of actions have been undertaken to improve the attractiveness of the park for wildlife. A butterfly and bumble bee garden was created to attract pollinators to the park. Bee nesting boxes have also been installed. The Girls Brigade built a number of bird boxes with the assistance of the Park ranger. An area of bulb grass is being experimented with to investigate ways to improve its value for insects and mini-beasts.
