Parks: Coates Crescent

By City of Edinburgh Council

By City of Edinburgh Council

Background
This Georgian crescent, with its twin, Atholl Crescent, were part of Edinburgh's New Town western development and substantially completed by 1825. Both crescents face each other across the main approach road into west Princes Street and their fronting gardens provide a welcome splash of green in what is one of the busiest parts of town.
History and heritage
Coates Crescent came into the care of the City of Edinburgh Council in 1949. Coates Crescent is home to an important staue of William Ewart Gladstone (1809-98), the former British Prime Minister with strong Edinburgh connections.
