Ninewells Community Garden lies in the beautiful arboretum of Ninewells Hospital, Dundee. Our mission is to promote physical activity and good health through community gardening, in an environment where horticulture supports wellbeing, therapy and rehabilitation. The garden includes wheelchair accessible paths, herbaceous borders, vegetable, sensory and physic gardens, small orchard with wildflowers, picnic area, wildlife habitat, garden room, polytunnel and children’s play area. The garden is run by volunteers, with the support of a garden facilitator and is available at all times for public, patients, staff, community groups, and garden volunteers to attend: for picnics, walks and play as well as gardening and a range of other activities throughout the year.
Facilities: Volunteering, Community space for hire, Picnic area, Play activities, Holiday activities, Wildlife area, Sustainable/Green building on site

If driving, please park in the hospital car parks and follow the directions to Maggie's. Once at Maggie’s you can see the garden through the trees to the east - walk past the car park, cross the driveway and follow the path down the hill until you come to the break in the wall. Turn left and the garden is a little further on, on the left.
If coming by bus, the easiest way to find the garden is to alight at Ninewells Hospital, walk back the way you came (away from the hospital), cross the road and walk down Kirsty Semple Way. Follow the signs for Maggie’s.
