Starbank Park came third out of the all Scottish entrants in our first attempt in the Green Flag Awards People’s Choice poll of Britain’s best open spaces. This is great news for a small community park and reflects the huge efforts to restore the park from the Friends and the City of Edinburgh Council’s Ritchie Fraser, Jen Johnstone and Julie Milne (and her team).
