All of our parks and green spaces are open and should be used in line with Government advice on physical distancing to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Play areas and communal equipment, including outdoors gym areas are also open (update 29 June).
Members of the public should be aware that all public toilets remain closed until further notice (Tues 23rd June). We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Clatto Park has a large reservoir, woodland, paths and a play area. The reservoir was created as part of Dundee’s water supply in 1874, but is no longer connected to the supply network.
Ancrum Outdoor Centre use the reservoir for water sports, although sometimes there are problems with Blue Green Algae. The water is home to many ducks and diving birds, with many fish living in the very deep water.
A level path goes around the edge of the reservoir and smaller paths extend into Baldragon Woods and Clatto Moor (which has been recently planted with trees). Admiral Duncan wood was also been be planted to connect Clatto plantations to Templeton Woods to give wildlife such as Red Squirrels more habitat.
Please keep yourself safe at Clatto Park and follow any signs around the reservoir.
Facilities at Clatto include a watersports centre, children's play areas, picnic and barbecue site. The park offers recreational activities, such as watersports, that can be organised through Ancrum Outdoor Centre.
