The wide grassland at Leith Links was originally designed as a golf course, and to this day is popular with many sporting clubs and associations, as well as with local joggers and dog-walkers. The Links are also an important part of the Festival calendar, with Edinburgh Mela and the Leith Festival holding events here.
