Get ready to look up!

We are delighted to be supporting Giraffe About Town – an exciting public art event coming to Edinburgh this summer.

More than 40 huge giraffe sculptures will take to the streets of Scotland’s capital when Edinburgh Zoo’s Giraffe About Town trail goes live from 1 July to 29 August 2022.

Each eight-foot-tall model has been decorated by local artists and communities – all designed to celebrate Edinburgh’s extraordinary heritage and cultural diversity – creating a stunning, family-friendly trail for local people and visitors to explore and enjoy.

From the bustling city centre to the quant streets of Edinburgh suburbs, this incredible tall trail will highlight iconic locations and hidden gems right across our city in partnership with Wild in Art and will include our very own eight-foot-tall giraffe at Fountain Park! Find out more about this below!

Trail maps will be available from all of our brands at Fountain Park which will include details on how to download the trail app. Look out for some great app rewards including a sweet treat from one of our brands. 

Finally, the giraffes will have a fabulous farewell weekend when the bright and beautiful herd will be shown together for the  last time. The giraffe sculptures will then be auctioned at a special event to raise funds to support wildlife conservation projects in Scotland and across the globe, ensuring a tremendous legacy for the people and communities of Edinburgh.

For more information visit GiraffeAboutTown.org.uk or follow Edinburgh Zoo on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

“Fountain Park prides itself on being part of the community and a place for people to have fun experiences so we jumped at the chance to be involved in the Giraffe About Town trail. Not only to support the amazing work of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland as a leading conservation charity, but also to encourage people to get out and explore our beautiful city through art!

We chose a fantastic design by a local artist that ties in well with Fountain Park and how we offer our visitors the chance to escape and disconnect from the world when you visit any of our great activities on site. We can’t wait to see it in place!”
