A well maintained garden cared for by volunteers where you can have a walk with shelter from the coastal breezes. There are plenty of places to sit and admire the view and also some picnic tables.

Many years ago came here with the children, now enjoy the surroundings. It is well kept by a local group, and right on the seafront.

The rocks didn't seem to have grown much since my previous visit. Maybe the groundkeeper has been neglecting them.

Lovely location for a walk - either on the way to Broughty Ferry / Monifieth or just to visit itself. Well maintained gardens, looked after by a team of volunteers. Lots of quiet places to sit, on a lovely day - or to wander round.

The Rock Garden can be combined with a walk on the adjoining beach, various plants tended by local Friends of the Rock Garden.

We came across the garden at the end of our walk along the 'promenade' at Broughty Ferry. It is small and compact but a lot of work has gone into making it look like a large rockery.
