Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As of March 24, all play areas and communal equipment, including outdoor gym areas, will be closed. Parks themselves and green spaces will be open for exercise and should be used in line with Government advice on social distancing to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.


Caird ParkDonated by Sir James Caird, one of Dundee's local benefactors, the park includes Mains Castle and Den o' Mains. Mains Castle was renovated in the 1980's through a government scheme for the unemployed. The park is ideal for active recreation and walking with 18 and 9 hole golf courses, velodrome, athletic track and winter sports pitches. The Gelly Burn cuts through the park and feeds the ponds in Den o Mains. The wooded Den provides habitat for red squirrels, orchids and kingfishers. Other paths take visitors to see old oak avenues and grand old copper beaches.
