Tincombe Park is an area of approximately 12 acres of parkland in Saltash, Cornwall which is extended by an additional 2.5 acres of Tincombe Nature Reserve to the East. It is bordered by Oaklands Drive to the North and partly by Tincombe (the road) to the South East, and by residential gardens or allotments on the remainder. The park is owned by Cornwall County Council and Managed by CORMAC PLC. In 2019 Tincombe Park became the first place in the county of Cornwall that trees were planted which now contribute toward the ‘Forest For Cornwall’, a project organised by Cornwall County Council. Historically the area has been heavily linked to farming. However in the late 18th and early 19th century Tincombe Valley was used for quarrying Blue Elvin stone. Part of the Valley was developed into a golf course in the 1920’s which came to an end by the early 1940’s. After which the land reverted to farm land until housing started to surround the valley in the 1980’s.
