Truro City Council's Parks department is responsible for play areas throughout the City; Hendra play and skate park, Tremorvah and Redannick playing fields as well as Boscawen and Victoria Park. These parks are equipped with swings, slides and other types of children's play equipment. The Parks department is also responsible for maintaining the grounds in Truro Public Cemetery and Kenwyn Churchyard (for information relating to burials please go to the cemeteries page).
Truro City Council's Parks department is responsible for the floral planting displays and hanging baskets you see on all approaches into Truro and around the City Centre (for more information on our summer planting service please click here). These displays not only bring a feel good factor to the City for people who live, work and visit, but enable the City to enter the South West in Bloom competition run by the Royal Horticulture Society. Truro has received great success in this competition click here for more information. Truro City Council also holds their own 'Gardens & Allotments' competition for local residents at the end of June each year.
Truro is fortunate to have an 18 acre wildlife area situated off Moresk Road called Daubuz Moors and a volunteer community tree warden, Richard Argall. Richard can be contacted by email -firstname.lastname@example.org
