The suspect is described as white, 5ft 10in to 6ft tall, wearing a black hooded top with the hood up and black jogging bottoms.
He was wearing white trainers, black gloves, and black scarf around his face.
Det Insp John Kavanagh said: "The staff were left traumatised by the event and the man escaped with a four figure sum of cash.
"We are appealing for anyone who was in the area of Duddingston Park and heard or saw anything suspicious, to contact police on 101."
