Hackney Marshes is adjacent to the Teign Estuary and racecourse. Access can be gained from Greenhill Way, where there is a free car park, and from a footpath from the Passage House Inn. You can find a wide variety of wildlife in a mix of grassland, reed beds and ponds.
There are bicycle racks, wheelchair-friendly ramped bridges and level paths and picnic benches. A lock to the long abandoned Hackney Canal can be found on the waterside.
This 8.5 acre area is a Local Nature Reserve and managed by Teignbridge District Council.
