The series of parks around the Royal Victoria Hospital is the largest in Dundee. One can put together a nice 2-3 miles around Balgay Park/Victoria Park/Lochee Park, including paths to forested Mills Observatory.
To extend the run, use Peel St. at the northern end of Lochee Park, and continue west on a path for 2 miles to the Change Centre Dundee sports complex, which has some paths around a green.
For those who’d like to tackle a 10-miler, we’ve mapped a route that continues past the Change Centre Dundee, and along the Green Circular south to Riverside Nature Park, then east along the River Tay Path for 2 miles to Magdalen Green. For the final ~2 miles, use Blackness Ave. or the paths through Western Cemetery.
- 2-3 miles around the paths of Balgay Park, with options for up to a 9.3 mile loop that we've mapped
- Balgay Park
- Parking near the tennis courts
