Lovely park to take children or take the dog for a walk. The river Taw runs right beside the park. Not easy to park there, always busy.

As always a pleasant and joyful walk with 'man's best friend ' ! Have yet to find this park in anything other than tidy ,well groomed and clean. A credit to gardeners and Council staff. Thank you 😊

Large park area along the river Torridge has the usual play areas, basketball hoop (but no court) skatepark, large BMX dirt jumps, little BMX dirt track. There are also tennis courts and lawn bowls, but I believe they are club affiliated/need to book to be able to use. Public toilets are also in the park. 3hrs free parking along the road, and spaces up by the skatepark area.
