Astor Park

Report a problem in a park or playground

Astor Park is a medium sized park (1.3 hectares) in the Cattedown area of Plymouth. With ample flat grass areas, a play area and a multi-use games area it is an important green lung for the local community. The park was renovated in 2006 as part of our East End Renewal Scheme.

The park is named after Lady Nancy Astor who became the first female MP to take her seat in the House of Commons when she was elected to parliament for Plymouth Sutton in 1919.
