Pittencrief Park

An early twentieth century public park, managed as well as a park in a spa town or famous tourist resort. Pittencrief park is well known to design historians from the two competition entries submitted by Patrick Geddes and Thomas Mawson in 1903-4. Neither scheme was implemented but both schemes influenced the layout of the park. It has the classic features of a Victorian industrialist's garden: a formal lawn, terraces and woodland garden. An art gallery takes the place of the rich man's house. Dunfermline continues to benefit from the legacy of its most famous son, Andrew Carnegie.
