Donated 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.
