Autumn paints a golden glow on Exeter’s Valley Parks
Published: 7 November 2019
Exeter’s Valley Parks are looking glorious this time of year as Autumn paints a golden glow over the city’s green lungs.
Owned by the City Council and newly managed by Devon Wildlife Trust, the Valley Parks are the perfect place to unwind with a leisurely stroll, wildlife ramble, jog or cycle.
Autumn is a great time of year to see the six Valley Parks in full splendour as the trees take on a golden glow before shedding their leaves and stepping into winter.
Earlier this year the Council passed the management of the Parks over to Devon Wildlife Trust and in doing so, safeguarded the future of the city’s green lungs.
The partnership will help improve the management of the parks for wildlife as well as improving and increasing public access so that more people can enjoy these beautiful spaces.
In the last 18 months, the City Council has increased the size of its green spaces by buying up 13 acres of privately owned land within the Valley Parks for people to enjoy.
Getting out in the countryside has been proven to benefit mental health and the City Council is leading the way in social prescribing.
The six Valley parks are:
- Duryard & Belvidere
