Magdalen Green

A strip of land which slopes steeply down towards the Firth of Tay and the Tay Railway Bridge from the Sinderins in W Central Dundee, Magdalen Green is said to represent the city's oldest park, 6.9 ha (17 acres) of common land used for recreation for more than 400 years. A fine A-listed cast-iron bandstand was constructed in 1889, the work of Walter Macfarlane & Co's Saracen Foundry in Glasgow. It was restored 1991 but needed further repairs in 2009. Magdalen Green had a railway station until 1956. In early 2010, four large water tanks were installed here by Scottish Water to hold excess rainwater during periods of high tide, as part of Dundee's flood defences. The Green is managed by Dundee City Council.
