Almost £150,000 of funding has been granted to transform the area around the Dighty Burn.
East Dundee Environment Network (Eden) will use the funding to open up pathways, enabling more people to take advantage of the green space.
A programme of arts, outdoor learning and conservation activities will also be introduced.
The £148,000 funding comes as part of £1.2 million of grants awarded by the National Lottery.
Eden project co-ordinator Ann Lolley said: “We are pleased to have been awarded this funding.
“It will allow us to work alongside local people to improve the run-down entrances to the Dighty Burn from the community of Douglas so that more people can enjoy the wildlife, water, green spaces and footpaths along the burn.”
Big Lottery Fund Scotland chairwoman Maureen McGinn said: “We are awarding funding to 12 diverse community projects.”
