We look after and develop 950 hectares of open green spaces within the city, working to provide a better cleaner, safer, greener environment and quality of life for the residents of Plymouth. This equates to roughly 1170 football pitches of greenspace. 

Dogs are required to be kept on a lead:

  • in some of our parks
  • within the marked pitch/playing area of our sports pitches

Dogs are excluded from enclosed children’s play areas and sports facilities. Visit our Dog Control page for full details.

Some of our parks have been awarded the Green Flag Award.

The Green Flag Award is the national standard of excellence for parks and green spaces. The scheme recognises and rewards the best green spaces in the country. To meet the Green Flag Award standard, green spaces need to be healthy welcoming places that are safe and secure, clean and well-maintained and sustainable. The management of the green space must involve the community, pay attention to conservation and heritage and include marketing of the site.

We currently hold Green Flag Awards for:

We're working towards Green Flags for other sites too - watch this space!
