Lovely for a dog walk

Lovely for a dog walk to get away from the city. A river for the dogs to paddle in and cool down on a hot day with plenty of trees for shelter. A variety of different walks to do.

The walks in this area are ideal for dogs and the river is easily accessible and not too deep for dogs and children to go swimming. Some of the locals like to jump in from the bridge but the water is only deep in one place so beware. Some rubbish was seen in the water so caution needs to be... More

Popular with dog walkers, walkers, runners and cyclist. Mostly a large wooded area, large fields, with a river walk. River Plym is used by younger swimmers and is a joy for dogs. Large car park available and frequent ice cream van. Separate miles of pathways offer the opportunity for long hikes or cycling. No toilet facilities.

Enjoy walking here with the dog but wish cyclists would ring their bells! Although this time we discovered crossing over to the other side where the cyclists don't go and the dog can get in the water, great fun.

Good walking, cycling and kids exploring/playing in the outdoor woodland beside the river (supervision needed need the river). You could spend hours outside enjoying the area.

Another brilliant spot for a dog walk or a cycle, car spaces available but much nicer to cycle in and take a picnic for a half way rest

Great place to walk the dogs - and you will meet plenty of dog-walkers. It's hard to believe that something to natural and teeming with wildlife is within spitting distance of the largest city on the south coast.....but that's part of the beauty of Plymouth. If I were not a dog-walker I would probably not enjoy it so much -... More

GREAT place for a stroll, keeping cool, amidst birdsong, lush ferns, variety of trees ,the gurgling water, sun dappled walkways.. Had a long walk there just last week, Why did I leave it so long/

Such a beautiful hidden spot - would never have known about it were it not for 'parkrun' which is held there every Saturday at 9am. So pretty and cool under the trees by the water and lovely to walk up to the viaduct. Often there is an ice cream/coffee van there but no toilets.

A very beautiful place but seems neglected, lots of evidence of erosion and lots of litter in summer. Areas of singed grass where fires have been lit. Enjoy it in late autumn or winter.
