Dunfermline Public Town Park

Dunfermline Public Town Park Bandstand

Dunfermline Public Park was created in 1866, almost 50 years before the more famous Pittencrieff park, which is on the western side of Dunfermline. The bandstand was built in 1888, and presented to the town, as a gift from Louise Carnegie, the wife of the infamous Dunfermline born philanthropist (and steel industrialist), Andrew Carnegie. The structure itself was built by Walter MacFarlane and Co, at the Saracen Foundry in Glasgow.

The photo below shows the eastern edge of the park, with the late Victorian housing that now surrounds the Dunfermline Public Park.
