Residents are sharing their views on Exeter’s stunning Green Circle Exeter Green Circle

Residents have been sharing their views on Exeter’s amazing 12-mile Exeter Green Circle walk which provides some of the city’s most stunning views.

The circular route around Exeter takes in five valley parks and is the perfect way to enjoy some exercise in the stunning green hills that surround the city.

Residents are being asked to share their views on the Green Circle to ensure there are no barriers to accessing it and to encourage even more people to use it.

Councillor Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Leisure Services and Physical Activity, said: “Many of us use parts of the Exeter Green Circle in our everyday lives without knowing it, others know the whole route and make use of it often. It’s so easy to dip in and out of different stretches of it, it’s a great way to enjoy some of the most relaxing and inspiring views in the city.”

“Part of our mission is to help people in Exeter and Cranbrook to be more active every day, and the Green Circle seems to us to be a very effective way of doing that, by encouraging residents to get outside and enjoy the open spaces that are right on our doorstep.”

The survey has been launched by Live and Move, the Sport England funded team put together to support people in Exeter and Cranbrook to be more active.

Wellbeing Exeter Community Physical Activity Organiser Ed Shaw said there are many different activities on offer throughout the 12-mile Green Circle.

He said: “We are very fortunate to have this incredible resource here in Exeter and there are many free activities such as guided walks, as well as skate parks and basketball hoops, all in green spaces along the Green Circle. There are lots of different ways to enjoy this space and this survey will help to give us a good idea of what people want to do there.”

The Green Circle survey will be available online until midnight on Wednesday 20 December, and those who participate will be entered into a prize draw to win one of ten £35 InExeter vouchers as a thank you for taking part.
