Poole Farm

When we need a quiet haven to get away from the bustle of city living, Derriford Community Park is the place that we go. Offering a wealth of habitats and activities, wildlife and people alike can easily seek out the space that they need to thrive.

Throughout the ages this landscape has served pre-medieval settlements, military defences, paper mills and tramways. It is now Derriford Community Park, where we can benefit our climate, our public health and biodiversity. Here we let nature take the lead to re-wild places, and even re-wild people.

It’s a place for unwinding, connecting to ourselves and the natural world around us; perfect for independent discovery, with freedom to play and explore. Most importantly it’s a place we can go to just be ourselves.

We all enjoy Derriford Community Park in many ways, there’s no such thing as a typical visit. Whether we’re wandering down a woodland path, enjoying the sound of the river, spotting tiny creatures and wildflowers, or seeing the landscape around us change with each new season - no two days are ever the same. There’s something to suit everyone. Get hands on with nature, uncover your wild side and leave feeling inspired.
