Opened in 1920 by industrial benefactor James Key Caird (whose name also graces Dundee’s Caird Hall), Caird Park is one of the city’s largest parklands. It sits on the sight of an ancient noble estate, as shown by the tower of Mains Castle, which was completed in 1582. The Den o’ Mains, a small, shaded valley, is home to a rich array of wildlife including kingfishers, orchids and red squirrels. Caird Park is also home to two large golf courses along with a brand-new athletics hub: the world-class Regional Performance Centre.
