Marchbank Park, also known as the Bell’s Field, is located in the centre of Balerno’s main housing area. The land is maintained (not owned) by the Council as an open space area since the development of the surrounding Bell’s Estate. The park is dissected by a tarmac footpath from Cockburn Crescent to Marchbank with connecting paths to adjacent streets. A mature line of Beech trees follows the path line and indicates the former line of a shelter belt to this originally agricultural field. Connecting open space at Deanpark offers a small community woodland area and children’s play facility.
