The pavilion at the tennis courts has been in a state of disrepair for a number of years now and Friends of Dudhope Park have been informed that Dundee City Council will look to remove the building. We believe this is an iconic building and very much a feature of Dudhope Park and would desperately like to save it. However, unless the community or an interested group or business can come up with a way to use the building, that will bring in income or grant funding to make repair and maintenance viable, the pavilion will be lost.
With the renovation of the tennis courts and the children’s play park right beside the pavilion and a kitchen and toilets inside there is great potential within the building. Do you know of anyone who would be able to use the space for a social enterprise, business or community group? If so please contact the Friends of Dudhope Park and we can look at the options for retaining this historic and important asset to the park.
