West Hoe Park is the perfect place to bring your children. Situated in a decent sized grassed area right on the waterfront are the infamous Gus Honeybun Trains. Loved by kids of all ages for generations, they were first put there in 1953 and are still growing more popular as the years go by. To go with them there is a huge bouncy castle, spinning cooking pots and a kiosk selling snacks and beverages. All rides are 50p each and you do get a decent ride 10minutes on the bouncy castle!! What's not to like :) . Down the other end of the park there are other amusements including crazy golf and a free park with swings and slides etc.

We took our grandchildren here. Our grandson is 3 1/2 and really enjoyed the crazy golf. You do have to pay. We got 13 tokens for £10. There is also a trampoline, liittle boats, tractors.

This park is great for anybody visiting Plymouth. Located off the Barbican and The Hoe, it is the home to mini golf, a play park, a field park, bouncy castle, tea cups, train ride (the latter three all relatively cheap) and the main toilets.

Been here so many times and my grand daughter always enjoys it. The park is always very busy but it is understandable as it is a really nice park with lots to do

Lovely little park situated on the Hoe. There are train rides, other fair rides and a bouncy castle. All at the brilliant price of 50p a ride! The people are all so friendly and a little cafe too.

Visited with my 4 year old grandson and a beautiful early summers day. Planned on staying a couple of hours but he enjoyed it so much I had to put another 2 hours in the parking meter (which is probably the only drawback - parking)
