Dock Park

An area of parkland on the east bank of the River Nith in Dumfries, Dock Park lies a quarter-mile (0.4 km) south of the town centre. Once the harbour for the town, an avenue of lime tree was first laid out in 1748. It now offers pleasant riverside walks, together with a bowling green, a monument to two local victims of the Titanic disaster of 1912 and a B-listed cast-iron bandstand dating from 1906, which was the work of the Saracen Foundry (Glasgow).
