Armada Park was created as part of the development of Chelston after the war, and a new open space was provided on high ground near Nut Bush Lane.

Armada Park was opened officially in September 1956 and to celebrate the opening a football match was played there. Armada Park was named after the Spanish Armada in 1500’s. Road names around the park are also a tribute such as Drake Avenue and Frobisher Green.

It continues to be used as a football ground by teams across Torbay. There is also a children's playground at Armada Park, which caters for all ages. In recent years, the management of this land has been changed to incorporate a wildflower meadow. Dog walkers are able to walk many routes around the park as the grass has been cut at different lengths to create different path ways.
