The City of Edinburgh Council are thrilled to be part of Edinburgh Zoo’s public art trail event, which is coming to Edinburgh this July!

Scotland’s Capital city is widely regarded as one of the best and most beautiful cities in the world to live, work and study in. The City of Edinburgh Council work hard to ensure that all residents can share in its vitality, opportunity and success.

The Council provides over 700 services that has an impact on every resident’s lives, including bin collections and road repairs, maintaining stunning libraries and play parks and caring for our youngest and eldest citizens. They are thrilled to be part of this exciting trail, which is sure to be the talk of the town this summer!

Frank Ross, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, the City of Edinburgh Council, said: “The arrival of the giraffes last year was a huge boost to Edinburgh Zoo and I know they’ve attracted fans in their droves ever since.

This imaginative art trail is sure to be a fantastic sight on the streets of the Capital, and I have no doubt it will prove every bit as popular, offering family-friendly fun and helping us all to rediscover and connect with different parts of our city.

I’m delighted that so many Edinburgh businesses and organisations have got behind the campaign, helping the Zoo to continue its vital conservation work, which helps to protect endangered species all over the world.”
