Location: Cuthill Park is situated off Prestongrange Road, at the north-western edge of Prestonpans.  It is nestled between The Royal Musselburgh Golf Club to the south and Prestongrange Bowling Club at its northern edge. The postcode is EH32 9SL and Grid Refence is NT379739.

There are two entrances.  The North Gate is wheelchair accessible.   Currently there is 24 hour access as the gates are always open (although please be aware that there is no lighting within the park itself). Vehicular access is available by prior arrangement.

Dog Walkers: Dogs and their responsible owners are most welcome - bins are provided at both gates and within the play park.  Dogs MUST be kept on a lead in the vegetable growing area. Cuthill Park is a Dogwatch area.

Play Equipment:  There is a fully equipped play area with many exciting pieces of play equipment suitable for inclusive play for all ages. 

Woodland Learning Zone: In addition to the formal play equipment, parts of the park have been left 'wild' for natural play and are great for a minibeast hunt or nature trail.  We hope to add storytelling furniture and create paths in early 2017.

Bring something with you to tie to the Clootie Tree!

We recommend having a look at Love Outdoor Play or the Nature Detectives website before you visit to make the most of your stay in the park.

Slopes: Cuthill Park is surely the curviest green space in the area!  It's much-loved slopes are great for rolling down.

On the brow of the hill at the western edge of the park is a free-to-use telescope giving fantastic views across the Firth of Forth.

Community Garden:  Tucked away round the corner is where families, individuals and community groups grow produce in raised beds.  With more volunteers, this could be a really special place.

Geocache:  'This Charming Park' - a song lyric themed mystery cache can be found in the park.  Start your adventure at
