Finlathen Park

Finlathen and Drumgeith Parks have football pitches, woodland and paths, they are linked by the Green Circular cycle route. Finlathen Park has a play area and mini skate park. Drumgeith pavilion has changing facilities.

The Dighty Burn was known as Scotland’s hardest working stream, with over 30 mills using its water. There were mill ponds, water channels, drying green and mill buildings with water wheels all along it banks.

Drumgeith and Finlathen Parks were created where derelict mills stood, and by filling in ponds and lades. The Dighty still meanders through the parks, following it original course. The landscaped flat areas are ideal for football pitches, but after heavy rain or snow melt the Dighty can flood the parks. Allowing the Dighty to burst here is important to reduce flooding damage to homes down stream.

Finlathen Aquaduct was built by Dundee Water Company, around 1844 as part of a pipeline to bring water from Monikie Burn to Stobsmuir Reservoir, next to Stobswell Ponds.
