Devonport Park also known as ‘The People’s Park’ is a beautiful Victorian park, in use as such from the mid-1800’s. It has seen many changes over the years, both in its general appearance and uses. Over the years, the park has seen a general decline in its maintenance and use and this was the main reason for the creation of the Friends of Devonport Park (FDP) community group in September 2005.
