Exeter Science Park is a science park on the outskirts of the city Exeter in the United Kingdom. It is a 26 hectares (64 acres) site next to junction 29 of the M5 motorway.[1] The park is linked to the University of Exeter Innovation Centre, which provides accommodation for knowledge-intensive business start-ups.[2]

Services commerce company Blur Group became the first commercial business to move to the park in November 2013.[3][4]

The Redhayes pedestrian and cycle bridge over the M5 was a landmark project which evolved from a study looking at Green Infrastructure (GI) in Exeter and East Devon. The bridge links Blackhorse Lane to Hollow Lane, beside the park. It was opened on 20 July 2011 by Transport Minister Norman Baker.[5] The bridge won a British Construction Industry Award in 2011.[6]
