I walked over to the boundary wall of the roof, determined to see over the edge.
What word can I use instead of the phrase in bold?
EDIT: When roofs DO have boundary walls, usually a few feet high, what are they called?

If there's a dedicated walkway in front of said 'wall' one could refer to it as a "widow's walk"
