Popular Valley Park boasts fantastic new access improvements
Published: 22 March 2022
One of Exeter’s much-loved green spaces has become even more accessible thanks to a series of improvements that have been carried out.
Mincinglake Valley Park, located off Stoke Hill in Exeter, has had a number of pathways improved as well as an upgrade to a wooden footbridge that will help both people and wildlife continue to thrive in the tranquil green space.
Bright new welcome panels have also been installed to tell people about the Park and the wildlife that lives there.
The work has been carried out by Devon Wildlife Trust, who manage six Valley Parks in the city on behalf of Exeter City Council.
Funding for the improvements has come from Viridor Credits Environmental Company through the Landfill Communities Fund. Similar improvements are being carried out at nearby Barley Valley Park.
Getting out in the countryside has been proven to benefit mental health and the City Council is leading the way in social prescribing.
Exeter has six Valley Parks across the city and these are:
- Duryard & Belvidere
