Future Developments in Abbey Park - What do you think?

The Friends of Abbey Park and Meadows and Kings Gardens in conjunction with Torbay Council are seeking help from residents, businesses and visitors to decide on the future of Abbey Park.

Rapid progress is being made on the works by South West Water and the Council has recently initiated a survey soliciting views on the creation of a play park on the former balloon site. This met with lots of enthusiasm with over 90% of the respondents thinking a children’s play park would be a good idea – roughly half preferring a traditional park and half a water park. Those options are being worked up so that funding can be sought.

Torbay’s Voluntary, Community and Social  Enterprise Sector has been experiencing a  period of significant change, in part in  response to those severe reductions in the  public sector that are having such a major impact on local life - with more, of course, to come. A series of open discussions over a  period of  many months and involving more than  100 voluntary sector representatives has  resulted in our establishing a Community Development Trust for Torbay (Torbay CDT), its intention being to make Torbay a place where all people feel included and can become involved in growing a thriving local community.
