6. The Den, Teignmouth

A Green Flag award park close to the seafront at Teignmouth that attracts both local residents and tourists.

The Den is one of the most popular open space destinations in the Teignbridge District. It offers a variety of attractions including the large, award winning children's play area, a multi use games area, the new adventure golf course facility, a food kiosk, football pitches and an array of beautiful floral displays. 
Maps of Teignmouth from 1889 show the Den laid out as a park with three main lawns, a perimeter path and a fountain. The ornamental beds on the promenade were laid out in the late 19th and early 20th century.
