“amazing improvement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I came to my home city for Gay Pride. Having left Plymouth 7 years ago I was amazed . Having walked through this park on my way to work @ the Naval base, I was pleasantly shocked. It was good to see that the tennis courts are still around, and in use.. To see that the cannon is still in situ was great. My father & his parents lived in Albert Road for much of their lives[wartime excepted] Good to see the bandstand with a roof again. My fathers later years till death were blighted with dementia, and on the corner of Devonport Park is a trial home, where father spent time till he was found a permanent[ish] home.

“Far better than Central Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Once upon a time, this park was left alone to the vandals. Then a volunteer group got together, and have brought it back (and still are hard at work) to what it was many years ago. Seasonal flower beds ornate fountains and monuments lost to the wilderness and found again and restored. A new BandStand put back in the original position. The cafe do excellant food and are quite reasonably priced. Tennis courts and wonderful views across the River Tamar into Cornwall.

“Reclaimed park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Over past few years park has been regenerated to great effect. Great views over the city and over the dockyard. Excellent children's play areas with some unusual play equipment. Reasonable cafe- for refreshments.
