Bonnie Dundee is a partnership of community groups, Dundee City Council, businesses, organisations and individuals who collectively aim to make Dundee a cleaner, greener and brighter place.

Dundee has a great sense of community and enthusiasm, with projects ranging from community allotments which provide a growing space for local residents, to promoting the health benefits of using the City’s fantastic parks and greenspaces.

Dundee’s communities work hard throughout the year to help improve their local environment. Enthusiastic volunteers are involved in a range of activities each year including tending planters, helping to maintain their local park, litter picks and improving biodiversity.

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.
