Background
Divided by Niddrie Burn, Jewel Park falls neatly into a sports section for football and kick-about area next to Duddingston Park South, and a section for strolling and play for younger children. The park has hard paths and lighting. There is some attractive woodland with birch, ash, rowan, cherry, sorbus and sycamore. There is a small enclosed section for younger children to play football, games or cycle.
History and heritage
Jewel Park, opened by the council in 1959, takes its name from a rich seam of coal that once ran there.
