Our parks are currently open for exercise, providing the Government rules are adhered to.

In the past two years the Council has supported investments of around £175,000 into refurbishing play areas in Mid Devon. Across the district developments have been made to modernise and make our play areas more accessible.

Westexe (Tiverton), Glebelands (Cheriton Bishop) and Palmerston Park (Tiverton) have all seen redevelopments in recent years with our most recent redevelopments being made at Linear Park (Cullompton) and Puddington at the beginning of May.

Linear Park now has an assault course with equipment being doubled and mirrored so that families can enjoy a bit of light-hearted fun racing each other through the course. New additions include parallel bars, overhead bars, and a three bar balance beam as well as a few more obstacles dotted in-between.

All of our newly developed play areas include equipment designed to support toddlers to teenagers with improved accessibility to allow for inclusive use where possible. Quality of life improvements have also been made such as the additions of new bins and benches.

The Council has plans for a series of improvements to be made at many more recreational areas across Mid Devon – with play parks in Crediton, Tiverton, Willand and Wembworthy all currently being looked at for future upgrades.
