The pavilion and park were gifted to the people of Dundee by prominent flax mill owners, the Baxter family in 1863.

The park was laid out by one of the great innovators and achievers of the 19th century, Sir Joseph Paxton and the pavilion was designed by his son in law, George Henry Stokes.

The historic glass fronted Italianate Pavilion positively shines in its restoration and brings classical grandeur to the park.

It is situated in the midst of 38 acres of mature parkland and is reached through grand entrance gates and sweeping lawns.

The Pavilion is now a popular wedding venue.

The Howff

The Howff is the name given to the historic graveyard that lies on the south of Meadowside in Dundee. It occupies the garden of the former Greyfriars monastery, which was founded by Devorgilla Balliol in the 13th Century. The monastery was destroyed in 1548 and Mary Queen of Scots gifted the land to Dundee.
