Any good parks for toddlers in Exeter?

We're meeting (childless) friends in Exeter tomorrow afternoon but we'd like to make a nice morning of it seeing as the weather is lovely at the moment, playing with our dd (3.3) and ds (19months). Does anyone have any recommendations for good playgrounds/parks in the area that would keep a couple of very active toddlers happy for a couple of hours?

Thanks

Heavitree park always used to be nice but I've not lived there a while so not sure if it's changed much.....

Thanks scrabble, having had a look on the local gov website, Heavitree looked like quite a good one - with paddling pools which will be nice if tomorrow's weather is anything like today's grin. But it's hard to guess how good something is from squinting at google maps! Was it good for toddlers when you used to live there?

Heavitree park pools were filled a couple of weeks ago, the park has lots of space so is good for littlies to run around. George V playing fields are also good, they have sandpits. Also, the Respect festival is on in Belmont Park which may keep your toddlers entertained for a bit.

Thanks blacktea I hadn't thought to check whether the pools actually had water in them...! One of our parks (I'm in Plymouth) has got fountains for the kids to run around in but they don't turn them on until about now so it can be really frustrating to arrive with excited kids and then realise the park is as dry as a bone!

Might check out the Respect festival. Didn't know it was on. Thanks for that.
