The new Winchburgh Marina provides a unique aspect to Winchburgh and sits adjacent to the new Town Centre. The new Daisy Park will also be developed immediately east of the Union Canal and will be accessed via a new footbridge. The marina with future restaurants and café alongside it will form a central social hub for the new town centre. From the marina you will in time be able to access the various water activities in Daisy Park or wander along the canal to the Auldcathie Park.

The green and blue infrastructure being developed around Winchburgh are essential to ensure the expanding village keeps its rural feel and all areas of the expanding community remain connected. This will also provide places to enjoy the benefits of the connections far beyond Winchburgh itself.

Up to 20 barges will be able to moor in the marina and will be supported by a Scottish Canals facility on site. Restaurants and cafes will sit alongside the water’s edge and in time 29 further moorings will be available along the canal to bridge 24. True living on the water will come to Winchburgh.

Active use of the water – access to the Canal and the Quarry in Daisy Park – will be enhanced through active promotion and management, so that it can be enjoyed by school pupils as part of their regular outdoor activities as well as the wider community sports clubs and visitors to the area. Winchburgh will provide for an active lifestyle through enhanced environments bringing the outdoors right to your doorstep.

The community has been involved with the canal development from the start, marking the moments in history for many youngsters seeing this first new marina in Scotland for over 10 years being built in the heart of their community. We have recorded this from the outset and the time lapse video will be added to each month through to completion so everyone can enjoy the journey together.
