Welcome to our website!

Here in Devon we are blessed to be surrounded by stunning coastal scenery; wonderful moorland and beautiful countryside. The greenspaces in our towns and cities are also precious, so groups such as “The Friends of Upton Park” play an important role in helping to protect and enhance these urban gems.


Upton Park sits next to the town centre in Torquay and provides a combination of leisure, sporting and play facilities that are highly valued in an area that, sadly, has some pockets of high deprivation. The Park is less than one hundred years old but has had a varied and interesting history.


The “Friends” are a long established group of volunteers who try and represent the interests of local residents; local  businesses and  visitors by working with Torbay Council to ensure that the Park is a safe; well maintained; and welcoming place.


Please explore these pages to find out more about our cherished Park and our aspirations for the future. ENJOY!
