Boscawen Park is Truro’s play, sports and activity hub. Here, you will find tennis, football, trios, can you club, a fantastic children’s playground and refreshments. All activities are set in beautifully, maintained Parkland and gardens.

Walk through the car park towards the river with the tennis courts on your left. To your right, take in the fantastic views of Truro and the cathedral spires at the head of the river.

History and highlights

The route skirts Boscawen Park, from the Tennis Centre, along the river’s edge before coming back through the beautifully kept gardens to finish.

Outdoor gym equipment is available as you join the path, which continues with the river to the right.

Enjoy sweeping views across the river and continue south to Sunny Corner. Or bear left, and use the pavement to continue the loop back to the park, taking in the cricket grounds as you pass.
