From Edinburgh's Thriving Greenspaces draft consultation

Like  many cities in the UK, Edinburgh faces challenges in looking after its greenspaces, places that are so important to the fabric of the urban environment and bring so many benefits to citizens and wildlife.

Our greenspaces have a high biodiversity value and provide nature-based solutions to achieve the
city’s sustainability 2030 ambitions and deliver on the Edinburgh Biodiversity Action Plan.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the vital importance of greenspaces for health and wellbeing
and an essential quality-of-life element in sustainable cities.
