We look after and develop 950 hectares of open green spaces within the city, working to provide a better cleaner, safer, greener environment and quality of life for the residents of Plymouth. This equates to roughly 1170 football pitches of green space.

Volunteer with nature and parks

Volunteers play a vital role in helping us to keep Plymouth's green spaces beautiful and exciting places to visit and to enhance the wildlife.

Individuals, schools and community groups can help in a huge number of ways from organising events to scrub clearance, tree planting, litter picking or path maintenance to name a few!

Volunteering is a great way to meet people, learn new skills and have fun while putting something back into your local community.

If you think you've a few hours to spare, why not give it a go!
