Treverlen Park



MBLA are providing landscape architecture services to Holmes Miller architects for a new public park in Edinburgh on the site of the former Portobello High School.

Holmes Miller developed proposals for the park following community consultation which confirmed the communities requirements for active play set within a natural park design.

The park design consists of open space augmented by two tree roundels. The roundels have clearings within which active play is accommodated.

The roundels are dissected by paths which connect existing entrances on Duddingston Road, Hamilton Terrace and Drive.


The formal and informal play includes free climbing boulders, a wheels area and landforms.

Visualisations by courtesy of Holmes Miller.

Project team comprises lead consultant Holmes Miller, engineers Aecom, project managers Currie & Brown, cost consultants Doig + Smith.  

Phase 1 works completed 2018

Phase 2 works commenced Autumn 2018

More information on the area and the progress of the park can be gleaned on the website TREVERLEN
