Work has begun on a new £3m adventure world in a Devon city park. The Hobbit-style playground, featuring different activity zones, is being built in Plymouth’s Devonport Park. The Highlands will have a playhouse, nest swing and toddlers’ carousel, while the Middlelands will include climbing ropes and a zip-wire. A youth pod for chilling out will be based in the Lowlands and a sensory garden will be planted with aromatic plants and herbs for adults. Ideas for the adventure world were put forward by parents, children, and local residents’ group, the Friends of Devonport Park (FDP). Work starts on Hobbit-style park
