Our major projects

Saltmill Park, Saltash, Cornwall

Formerly a refuse tip, Saltmill Park is now a busy community space with stunning views over the River Tamar.

Today the 17 acre park boasts a competitively priced all-weather 3G football pitch, suitable for official league match play and a training and education centre. The pitch is well used by local clubs and features adult small sided leagues on both Tuesdays and Thursdays, but is also available at various times for casual play bookings, after school clubs and holiday camps for local children.

The park also features a popular skate park, BMX track and children's play area. There is a family focused Nature Zone to showcase the incredible wildlife, with a bird hide, butterfly and bee sanctuary. It is also home to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If you want to book a meeting, a party, the pitch, please get in touch!
