Nature Park information
Riverside Nature Park has been created from Dundee's old landfill site and opened in 2011. Trees and wildflowers have been planted to form new wildlife habitats. Visitors will find new paths, view points and information signs to help explore the park.
The Nature Park enjoys an important location on the Tay Estuary. The water quality of the Firth of Tay is one of the best in Europe for a major estuary. The estuary has many important natural heritage designations because of the number of species it supports.
The paths to the south of the Nature Park are ideal for watching wading birds feeding on the mud flats at low tide or roosting in Invergowrie Bay at high tide. Inside the park, redshank, oystercatcher and curlew can often be seen alongside one of the pools probing the soil for worms and other invertebrates. Over 80 species of birds have been seen on or near the Park.
