Magdalen Green Footbridge


We would like as many as possible to attend the West End Community Council meeting on Tuesday, 13th of February, in Blackness Library, as the footbridge is on the agenda. Please note, the doors are closed at 7pm prompt.


Wych Elms

You may have heard the rumour that the wych elms on the Green were to be removed. This is not the case, but the council have begun a programme of successional planting below the trees to ensure IF and when the old trees have to come down, there will still be elms.


Hello from Friends of Magdalen Green


Friends of Magdalen Green was formed to protect and enhance Magdalen Green, Dundee.  It arose from local concerns that this lovely parkland was being damaged by car parking, vandalism and litter and also that its facilities were being underused.  The association was formally constituted by a large group of local residents at a public meeting in Dundee on 16 May 2007.  Local councillors, Dundee City Council and the West End community have all been very supportive in helping to establish FoMG, and in backing our campaign issues. 

Aims and Objectives   

  • to promote the preservation, maintenance and improvement of Magdalen Green for the benefit of the public by associating the local authorities and other stakeholders in a common effort to provide such facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure time-occupation with the objects of improving the conditions of life for those who use the Green;
  • to promote the conservation of the environment, plant, animal and bird life of the Green;
  • advance the education of the public in the history and natural history of the Green

We are a small charity, run by volunteers and overseen by OSCR. Our

charity registration is SCO 39603.
