Dundee may be small, but it's packed with green spaces and amazing views.

Imagine taking sunset walks along the waterfront or chilling with friends at the beautiful Magdalen Green. If you climb up the Law (Dundee's highest point), you will be rewarded with panoramic views across the entire city, the Tay estuary, and far beyond to the hills of Fife and the Sidlaws.

We have a variety of running, walking, and cycling routes around the city's parks and other green spaces, as well as along the riverside.  There's a 26-mile 'Green Circular' route which circumnavigates the city and is a popular place to get some fresh air and exercise.

One of the best green spaces in Dundee is the Botanic Gardens. Free for students, it is a real oasis in the city.
