To make sure that Drake’s Place was a truly inclusive project, we ran a wide-ranging consultation prior to its restoration.
This garnered over 800 comments and ideas on how we could bring the gardens and reservoir back into community life for everyone to enjoy, with opportunities for events, leisure, learning activities, training and volunteering projects.
Local community support, including through the Friends of Drake's Place, was crucial in making this project
happen and is as important now as it was then.
The Friends of Drake’s Place is a friendly and important group comprising comprise local residents, councillors, faith leaders, teachers, curators, partners, University of Plymouth staff and students. If you would like to become a Friend please contact us.
