For a park with such a long history it's condition should have been a lot better. Whilst there are interpretation boards they are poor in condition and content. The outlook to Arthur's seat and to the Forth Estuary are spectacular. This has not been capitalised upon! The park is quite heavily used by both visitors and local people. More would come if it were in better condition.This park surrounding a famous building was badly maintained; no maintained footpaths for so heavily used an area. Trees were poorly maintained and there was none if any care of the grounds.
Here is an opportunity to show off a little bit of Edinburgh's cultural wealth but unfortunately the local authority have failed. A great pity!
