Efford Valley is a good sized greenspace (nine hectares, that's about nine football fields!), looking over to the River Plym and Saltram, in the heart of the community of Efford. It's a great space for all ages, with good quality paths, natural play features, benches and a woodland classroom seating area. Sited in a valley means there are hills to walk up, but the views really make up for it!

It's also great for nature - home to a wide variety of habitats including woodland, wildflower meadows, an orchard and marshlands. Between 2008 to 2010, the site was the focus of improvements including woodland thinning, path improvements, play improvements and interpretation.
