Blockhouse Park

About us

Blockhouse Park is one of the highest points in the city (70m) offering spectacular views of Dartmoor, Plymouth Sound and over the River Tamar to Bodmin Moor. The Mount Pleasant Redoubt sits at the highest point of the park and was originally built in the Napoleonic era. In the Second World War it housed anti-aircraft guns to defend Devonport Dockyard which it looks down upon.

  • Fantastic views across the city and beyond
  • Good paths throughout the park
  • Swifts can be seen above the park in summer screeching whilst they perform aerial acrobatics
  • Wildflower meadow
  • Orchard
  • Bins and dog bins
