Bonnie Dundee is a partnership between community groups, Dundee City Council, businesses, organisations and individuals from across the city.  Enthusiastic volunteers are involved in a wide range of projects and activities each year including tending planters, litter picks, encouraging biodiversity and community gardening. Those involved aim to improve the built and natural environment for both residents and visitors alike.  Bonnie Dundee and its partners are supporting the Year of Young People 2018, aiming to involve even more of Dundee’s youth in the campaign and help celebrate their contribution to Dundee by providing opportunities to input their skills and get involved.

In 2018, Dundee  won the 'VisitScotland Award for Tourism' for Slessor Gardens/Waterfront area:

The City of Dundee is undergoing massive redevelopment, particularly the waterfront area.  The area has new gardens areas, many of which have been designed and constructed by community groups.  The area is now heavily used by a wide range of groups, from individuals sitting having their lunch in the pocket gardens to large scale concerts with thousands of people attending.  The city’s profile has also been raised by the opening of the Victoria and Albert Museum. The area will soon have an urban beach and new children’s play area.  Slessor gardens was also awarded a Green Flag for parks in its first year of use.
