Midlothian Council Rosewell Pond Project

New Rosewell Pond – Project Funded by Midlothian Council

Water Gems have recently completed the construction of a new pond at Rosewell, next to the Dalkeith to Penicuik cycle path. We started working on this new pond in January and we are delighted that it is now finished. We are looking forward to seeing it flourish over the coming months and becoming a haven for local wildlife.

The building of the pond at Rosewell is part of a wider programme of pond upgrades and maintenance works, that we have been carrying out for Midlothian Council.

This programme has also included restoration work on both, the main pond and the curling pond at Vogrie Country Park, near Gorebridge. The work undertaken by Water Gems, included clearing vegetation and silt from the ponds. This increases the amount of open water, and depth of the ponds, benefiting the local pond life.
