The war memorial gardens form part of Dunfermline’s historic centre. In a dramatic location between the Abbey Palace ruins, cathedral, town centre, Andrew Carnegie birthplace and the wooded ‘Glen’ in Pittencrieff Park this greenspace is both important and popular. It’s character is varied, with a new pedestrian streetscape on a terrace above the ‘Glen’ connecting under the Old Palace.
There is also a walled garden on another terrace above this precinct which links across to the adjoining car park. The walled garden connects directly to the Abbey Church Grounds above, and this areas character is in keeping with its function, with evergreen shrubs and ornamental trees. It forms a quiet place for reflection, with the stone walls and open views out across the park below. Garden for Heroes has been added, with memorial to the armed forces killed after World War Two.
