The Meadows area of Edinburgh is another example of a 'green island' of public leisure space, set in the middle of densely developed areas which surround it. This was originally the South loch area of the city (the companion to the 'North Loch' at the edge of what is now Princes Street). Both were drained and turned into public garden space in the 18th century.

Can anyone one remember the meadows as allotments?? Are there any family photos taken at that time? I'd love to see them
