Add your Waverley Park experience

We need to understand how you move around Waverley Park, where you go, the streets and spaces you like and don’t like as much. That will help us focus on what to improve.

The best way of understanding those things is to ask you, the residents of Waverley Park, about your everyday experiences.

Please tell us! You can take a picture, write a few words, make a video or send us a sketch - whatever is best for you.

My neighbour has asked me to post the following on her behalf and it is typed verbatim. My name is Helen ,I have lived in Ravenswood Drive since 1946 so have seen many changes. We had come out of a world war and were all glad just to be alive. T...

Through traffic in WP is adversely impacting on our whole community and a recently upturned vehicle demonstrates the hazard for us all. The starting point for this project should, in my view, be focused on addressing the traffic issue - I believe ...

I think using the dead end roads in Waverley Park for extra greenery, play areas, benches etc would be good but there would need to be a plan to stop any potential anti social behaviour in the evening. We have previously contacted the police about...

I'd like to reduce the speed of cars on Ravenswood without moving the problem somewhere else in WP and still allowing residents access for their cars. The only way to reduce cars is to close the roads at Durwood and Dinmont so WP is not a through ...

I have posted earlier about some comments mainly on roads. I am not a cyclist but thought that the suggestion of a bike ramp at the railway bridge would be helpful to cyclists of all ages and allow safer access to PP and might be relatively inex...

Really lovely place to live and so close to schools, parks and local shops etc. I think speeding and traffic is the worst issue. In my experience the trouble points are the Pollokshaws Road / St Ronans junction; the Pollokshaws Road / Ravenswood...

Coming off Pollockshaws Rd into St. Ronans Drive a car came over the top of the hill and crashed into my parked car. Perhaps a roadsign is needed before the top of the hill advising that it is steep or just to be careful as there is a lot of pedes...

This is a fabulous place to live. There is great community spirit with residents taking care of the area, their pavements, gardens, lanes and there is lots of visible evidence of neighbours balancing active travel and car use . I would like to e...

I would like to see the surfaces of the lanes improved. The lane between my row of houses in Nigel Gardens and those in Midlothian Drive has recently been either a quagmire or an ice rink. It's certainly not easy to pull heavy bins through to get ...

GCC is currently skint and barely maintaining the city's existing infrastructure. Bearing that in mind, I'd like to see the basics sorted - potholes filled, lanes resurfaced, drainage sorted. Some kind of traffic slowing or reduction would be grea...

The main thing that would improve Waverley Park is dealing with the traffic problem. Too many cars using the streets as a rat run, and inconsiderate driving from parents at beginning and end of school day. This was clearly highlighted by the resul...

I think most of us are interested, first and foremost, in traffic control and I sense the focus is changing to more disputed areas that will weaken any concerted community action. I am concerned that we seem to be moving into a 'parents with young...

As a resident of WP (Ravenswood) for almost 40 years, the statistics from the road survey were shocking. Priority must be given to an overall decrease in traffic as well as reducing speed and road closures to stop rat running should be considered....

I live on Kenilworth between Ravenswood and Midlothian. My neighbours and I keep our bins at the back of our houses and wheel them along the lanes for the bin lorries. The lanes are grass (normally very attractive!) but builders' vehicles for pe...

I live on Ravenswood Drive and have small kids. Surprise surprise, the through traffic can sometimes be a nightmare and a concern for their welfare. Any useful measure to help limit the speed which vehicles pass by our front door, I am very intere...

I like when we have the play out day! I like that everyone is really friendly. I like going past the neighbours’ houses and they say hello. I’d like to have cleaner streets. When I go up the lane it’s sometimes quite messy. I’d like to have cars g...

I would like the back lanes to have grass on them to make a football pitch and would also like a skate park (Kieran, age 9)

I feel very fortunate to live in this area. Love the community spirit of Waverley Park, taking part in the various community events, and the fact that my kids have the back lanes as a space to play. However the traffic, especially on Ravenswood Dr...
