Dawson Park is the result of a bequest in 1940, by Mr William Dawson of Broughty Ferry
It is still a focus for sport in the East end of the city, with numerous pitches of both natural grass and artificial, tennis and basketball courts, a bowling club and various changing facilities.
The park has feature plantings, a sunken garden, and a formal cherry avenue along the north axis, which is particularly stunning in spring.
The design of Duntrune Community Garden is based around a domestic home situation, with a central pergola structure as the house. Areas such as the front, back & kitchen gardens are all represented, giving the visitor ideas for design, plant combination and content that can be used in their own gardens.
Additional features of interest include the Therapeutic Garden, gravel bed with water feature, heather garden and herbaceous borders.
The garden is open to the public all the year round and entry is free.
