Ivybridge Town Council has announced that phase one of the Filham Park project is "nearly complete". 

Ivybridge Town Council has announced that phase one of the project to improve the facilities at Filham Park is nearly complete, with "new signage and information boards" being installed over the coming weeks. 

A spokesperson for the town council said: "The entrances have been made more accessible for those with limited mobility, or in wheelchairs, mobility scooters and pushchairs - taking advantage of the new smoother paths.

"A change to the bylaws will also allow limited cycling, which will be introduced with the new signage. 

"The additional benches should allow lots of summer picnics to be enjoyed. The picnic benches mean that close dog control is more important than ever within the park. So please bear this in mind when walking your dogs. 

"Further phases will include access road improvements to better separate pedestrians and cyclists from cars between the road and car park, plus shelters and toilets to cope with rain showers and enable longer days out at the park."
