Plymouth’s wild swimmers will be able to rest on and jump off new swimming pontoons as part of a raft of goodies on the way this year.


Unfortunately Plymouth's much-missed diving boards will not be making a come back.


As well as the pontoons on the Hoe Foreshore, other work is planned including improvements to the waterfront, steps and slipways...



Council leader Tudor Evans said: “This is just the start. The national marine park is all about getting more people to enjoy the Sound - either on it or on it.

“We have a vision of what we want the park to be and like any national park, we want to make it easy for people to get in it. These are practical measures that mean more of us can enjoy and feel safe in the water of Plymouth Sound. More importantly this news sends a very strong message - the national marine park is on its way.”
