An OAP has hit out at the city council over its neglect of a former football pitch behind his home.
Alexander Mowat said the old Balfield pitch has become overgrown with weeds “more than three feet” tall.
Mr Mowat, who lives on Johnston Avenue, said the ground is an “eyesore”.
The 83-year-old said Dundee City Council used to maintain the area but that nothing has been done to it in the past year.
He said his pleas for action to sort out the problem had gone unheeded.
Mr Mowat said: “Up until about a year ago, someone from the council always came to cut the grass at the field at the back of my house.
“It used to be a football field but now it’s no longer used.
“No one has maintained it for the past year and it’s become an eyesore.
“The grass and weeds are more than three feet tall and it’s totally neglected.”
Mr Mowat said the overgrown weeds were making a mess of his own garden.
“My garden does have a wall but the wind blows pollen and bits of thistle over it,” he said.
A city council spokesman confirmed it was still responsible for the upkeep of the pitch but admitted that maintenance was “limited”.
He added: “The council carries out a limited maintenance programme in this area and work will be undertaken soon.”
