About Poole Farm

Plymouth City Council are working with partners to create the city’s newest park, Derriford Community Park. This site, rich in wildlife will have Poole Farm at its heart, alongside a new visitor and education centre.

Since 2015 volunteers have contributed over 6000 hours working from Poole Farm, planting over 1200 meters of hedgerow, the city’s largest orchard and wild flower meadow as well as establishing an apprenticeship scheme and habitat surveying.

The farm will be a major part of the Community Park, scheduled for completion in 2021, which will provide a foot and cycle path network and new access points for local communities.

Poole farm is a local nature partnership site that involves people in volunteering, learning and enterprise as part of the Derriford Community Park project. The farm, close to Estover and Crownhill, offers a welcoming countryside feel for all ages and experiences.
