Magdalen Green content
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 physical distancing to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
Magdalen Green has the distinction of being Dundee's oldest city park having been in use for some 400 years and has long been used for both meeting and recreational purposes.
The bandstand built in 1890 has become a Dundee icon and hosts concerts on Sunday afternoons during the summer. Built at the Saracen Foundry by Walter Macfarlane & Co of Glasgow it was restored in 1991. The summer of 2009 saw the start of much needed repairs to make it safe for future public use.
In early 2010 Magdalen Green became an integral part of Dundee's flood defences. Four large water tanks were installed by Scottish Water to hold excess rainwater during periods of high tide.
An active volunteer group – the Friends of Magdalen Green helps look after the green, and raises funds for new facilities.
