Friends of Magdalen Green

Magdalen Green is a beautiful and much loved park in the city of Dundee. It is Dundee's oldest city park, and has been a site for recreation, meetings and social gatherings for centuries.

The Green is home to a magnificent Victorian bandstand that has become an icon for the west end of Dundee. It was first opened in 1890 and extensively renovated in 1990. It is in need of further repairs now to ensure its survival for the next century.

Friends of Magdalen Green is a community group that exists to protect and enhance the Green for the benefit of present and future generations.
