Nansledan includes a variety of community gardens, parks and squares distributed evenly throughout the development, offering convenient outdoor recreation and growing space for everyone to enjoy. There are also plans for an urban farm at Gusti Vean.
Park an Chapel is on land between Nansledan and Quintrell Downs and is being created using soil from Nansledan which would otherwise have to be transported to landfill. This is an example of how the Duchy has thought hard about solutions that add value both to the community and the environment.
Park an Chapel will include a community orchard, two allotment gardens, recreation space, a network of pedestrian and cycle paths, and grazing land.
The broad green corridor along the valley of the Chapel Stream will be retained and enhanced, with areas for walking and play, and there will be a recreation ground connected to a network of footpaths and cycleways across Nansledan designed to promote health and wellbeing.
The recreation ground will serve the new primary school and include playing fields and a pavilion.
The Newquay Community Orchard continues to take shape on seven acres of land gifted by the Duchy of Cornwall on the western edge of Nansledan.
