Carnon Downs Recreation Area & Park Projects
Pengelly Meadows Recreation Area
As part of the new Taylor Wimpey Pengelly Meadows development on Bissoe Road a new recreation area has been created to the left of the entranceway to the development. The Parish Council through its own funds and also Section 106 funds has now been levelled the playing field to create a football area (goal posts will be installed later on in 2022) together with picnic benches and an outdoor gym.
The Parish Council feels that the two park areas in Carnon Downs should be two distinct areas, the existing play park for younger children and the new area at Pengelly Meadows should cater for older children and adults as well as being a green open space for the whole community to enjoy, the two areas are close together and the Parish Council has had a pavement installed on Bissoe Road to link the two areas and this was completed in late 2021. The legal work to transfer the land ownership from Taylor Wimpey to the Parish Council has now been completed.
A Party in the Park event to celebrate the offical opening of Pengelly Meadows Recreation Area was held in May 2022 and some photos of it are below. Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the event - we were very lucky with the weather!
