About Tuckingmill Valley Park
Tuckingmill Valley transformed from the most derelict land site in West Cornwall to an award winning park. The site situated in the heart of Camborne and Redruth has become a symbol of regeneration for the area.
A key aim of the scheme was to treat the complex contamination found on the site including mine shafts, landfill and arsenic works. Whilst maintaining symbols of Cornish mining. As well as signature plants and habitats associated with this environment.
The park has:
- a bespoke skate park
- walking trails
- play facilities
- creative art installations set
- a rich mosaic of habitats.
Two chimney stacks are key features on the site. Yellow flowering Gorse provides year round interest. The Red River, named by its original colour caused by the minerals from the mines, runs through the site. It is home to a diverse range of invertebrates, including the dragonfly from which the park gains its branding.
