Destination: Xplore Outdoors

Dundee enjoys distinction as the greenest city in Scotland, with more beautiful parkland per head than any other. That means no citizen ever has far to go to enjoy some free time, some great views and lots of fresh air.

Our parks are perfect for leisurely pleasure all-year round: seeing the beautiful blooms of spring; sunbathing in the heat of summer; kicking through the leaves of autumn; and strolling through the brisk air of winter. Some of our greatest green spaces were gifted to the people by benefactors such as the Cox brothers and the Baxter family - generous titans of our industrial past.

As well as being home to trees, flowers and wildlife, these verdant vistas also offer some historial treasures - including bridges, pavilions and even castles. Plus, every so often, they host fun-filled family events such as the Easter fun day at Camperdown, or the Park Lives programme of sporting activities across the city. So, what will you come across on your next wander?
