Country parks

Devon County Council also owns and manages two country parks; Stover Country Park near Newton Abbot and the Grand Western Canal near Tiverton, as well as Knapp Copse Local Nature Reserve near Ottery St Mary. These provide facilities for both local residents and visitors to enjoy a range of countryside recreation opportunities as well as being important sites for wildlife.

We have an ongoing commitment to improve the environment and range of facilities at these sites with the aim of integrating, environmental education and informal recreation which can be enjoyed and appreciated by all sections of the community.
