ACCESS TO ICE RINK CAR PARK

Since January 2017 there has been no vehicular access from Corstorphine Road.
You have to divert Riversdale Road or Saughtonhall Avenue. Click on the map opposite for directions


PEDESTRIAN Access from Corstorphine Road IS NOT AFFECTED.

.

  The work for the water of Leith flood prevention has also taken up a large amount of the front  of rink car park. There is still however plenty of space in the rear car park behind the Ice rink (go around the Curling rink and it is on the left.).

Unfortunately this means you have to walk back around the rink so please take this into account. Sorry but this is beyond our control. The good thing is once it is all complete the rink should never be flooded again
