Heavitree Pleasure Ground, Exeter Picture 1

Heavitree Pleasure Ground was opened in 1906 by the Heavitree Urban District Council. Originally designed by Veitch Nurseryman FW Meyer, the site was intended to be used for community recreation.

Today the park combines a wide range of leisure facilities for the city's visitors and residents with a strong horticultural heritage. Facilities for picnicking, skateboarding, basketball, BMX, tennis, bowls and play, make the pleasure ground a favourite family day out.

The park can be reached by foot or bicycle from entrances at Whipton Lane, Roseland Avenue, Hamlin Lane or Nicholas Road. Bus routes from the City Centre include the R and S.
