The network of parks across Exeter provides local people with a free, year round community resource. They also provide the backdrop to events throughout the year from Heavitree Fun Day in the Pleasure Grounds to the Food & Drink Festival in Northernhay Gardens.
We are committed to maintaining and improving play facilities across Exeter, including the water play facilities in Heavitree and St Thomas, which are so important to families in the city. We will also make much-needed refurbishments to the popular Flowerpot Skatepark.
This year, to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, we hope to rename the Wonford Playing Fields the ‘Queen Elizabeth II Playing Fields’ as part of a scheme to create a new trust, protecting this site against future development.
