Discovery Walk, will celebrate Dundee’s contribution to science and society with specially commissioned bronze plaques. The plaques will be set into the pavement in the open space area of the newly-named Slessor Gardens at the heart of the Waterfront development. The plaques will give clues to the fascinating stories of individuals whose discoveries and inventions have made many important and exciting contributions to modern life.

Discovery Walk is the brainchild of Kelly Marr, an Australian who was inspired by the Writers’ Walk around Sydney Harbour.

She said: “During the last 20 years I would hear about some of the great innovations that were made in Dundee, and I always felt that it was a great shame that such achievements were not celebrated publicly.”

“Discovery Walk will ensure that this part of the city’s heritage is never forgotten, and it will mean the city can take an enormous pride in the people that are celebrated.”

For more information about the walk, please head over to the Discovery Walk page.
