The Friends of Devils Point Park Association is a newly formed community group which exists to promote the conservation and improvement of the Park. They are currently working to gain increased public awareness of the Park, which is one of the most beautiful and underused in Plymouth.
Devil’s Point Park is located at the mouth of the River Tamar overlooking Plymouth Sound and Mount Edgcumbe. It is one of the most important parks in Britain due to its historic role as the place where British war fleets and sea expeditions have been seen off and welcomed home by their loved ones standing on the Point. In addition the park is a site of Special Scientific Interest, contains listed and scheduled buildings and is open to the public 365 days a year.
The Friends of Devils Point Park have identified a number of improvements to Devil’s Point Park that will act as a catalyst to further activity. Any funds they raise will be used to improve the environment of the Park and to enhance its appearance and interest. This forms part of a bigger plan to incorporate the Park into the South West Coast Path through direct pedestrian links to the adjacent Royal William Yard. They are specifically seeking funding for:
- £500 to fund a beach bin
- £600 to provide a notice board for recreational fishermen
- £1,000 to provide informational signage about the surrounding marine environment
- £1,500 to provide a main entrance welcome sign and guide map
- £1,500 to provide car park welcome sign and guide map
- £1,800 to provide pedestrian direction signs (a total of 3 are needed)
- £1,800 to provide information signage about a historical feature (a total of 12 are needed)
