Sadly a pleasant day spoilt by drunken or drugged up homeless men frequenting the shelters. Not a nice experience despite the park being kept pristine. Sorry to say I won't be going back there again :-(

There is also a monument to the parloamtarian Michael Foot. The park had a fantastic view of plýmoith sound, so you can watch all the shopping movements. There is also a cafe... More

There's a fair bit of history associated with this area. The park is named after a Civil War skirmish. Although there are now some trees and lots of development complicating the view this is still a good place to look down towards the old area of the town. There is a famous Turner engraving of folk frolicking on roughly this... More

Used daily for dog walks, great park and great festival in summer! Friendly people and flat for the old and disabled! Other parks in the area just as nice but don't have the view of the hoe and sound

I have played numerous games of football here. My son has played in the well-equipped park and loves it here. There is also a freedom fields festival here which is really excellent and free.

Lovely park with a perfect sea view giving a great impression of the old town and seaport. Sitting on a bench catching the setting of the sound, Staddon heights the older houses and church spires.

A well named park where you can sit and look towards the sea and the old town while remembering the battle of Freedom Fields where the royalist troops were seen off by the brave citizens in a short series of skirmishes and worse.
