Tourist Spot
Dens Park is a football stadium located on Dens Road in Dundee, Scotland. The stadium is the home of Scottish Premiership club Dundee F.C. and has a capacity of. The stadium shares part of the same road (Sandeman Street) as Tannadice Park, which is the home of city rivals Dundee United F.C.. The two stadiums are just 300 metres apart.In May 2009, it was reported that the stadium is owned by local businessman John Bennett who, despite having invested heavily in Dundee, has rejoined the Dundee United board, where he had previously been a director until September 2008.HistoryDundee moved to "Dens" from their first stadium at Carolina Port in 1899.Following Dundee's successful league campaign during the 1998/99 season, Dens park had to be redeveloped to adhere to the new Scottish Premier League seat-capacity guidelines. Dundee were therefore required to redevelop the East and West terraces. Barr Stadium Construction were charged with the task of removing the existing concrete terraces and the construction of two 3,000-seat stands. The stands were built in a record time of 82 days for the start of the 1999/2000 season. The two near-identical single-tier Bobby Cox and Bob Shankly Stands sit at either end of the ground. The former usually houses home supporters while the latter houses the away supporters. A new Club Shop and ticket office were also built. Dens Park was the first stadium in Dundee to have its floodlights upgraded in the twenty-first century. Undersoil heating was installed in 2005.

  • My latest visit was versus Rangers. First victory for many years so happy camper. First game for my daughter.  more »
  • Season ticket holder and fan so definitely a bias here from me. The place is full of ups and downs depending on the play and the score and the banter is sometimes not for delicate ears  more »
  • Made my debut at Dens and wasn't impressed at all. Some seats have a very restricted view and our stand was built in 1757  more »

  • Restricted view of the pitch. The pitch was in great condition. Staff and officials were extremely friendly. It's only getting 2 stars knocked off because of the restricted view (couldn't see the goal) and general repair of the stands.
  • Thaitin sé liom. Páirc imeartha thar cíonn, stíobhardach cairdiúil, píogaí blasta
  • I am a Dundee United fan 6-1.
