This web page might interest you http://www.armadaathletics.co.uk/. They organise winter 3k Park runs in central park, once a month. They also do 5k runs in Saltram park during summer, once a month as well. Slightly different to park run, but they maybe able to assist you.
Plymbridge Woods seems an interesting place to host a parkrun, but on the plus side, so many choices of routes available.
Just wondering if you have heard anything more from Joanne? Only because I might be interested in helping out
Depends really were the national trust is allowing it to take place.

Hi guys, I'm a student at Plymouth University. Does anyone have any more news about a Plymouth Parkrun? Are they looking for volunteers still?
I think it is still in the planning stages at the moment. I’m attending a meeting on Wednesday to talk about the scheme and to find possible routes, with someone from the national trust, park run and potential volunteers, but I am sure they will be a happy to have more volunteers.
Any news from the meeting?
Are we getting a Plymouth Parkrun?
I'd be happy to help out if volunteers are still needed, have already been in touch with Joanne @ Parkrun.
Alright Barefoot Matt.
Things do seem positive from the meeting and the park run is likely to start maybe late September, I will need to check up on this though. There has been a slight issue with the route and hopefully this is being sorted out as well. I am sure more volunteers would be welcome, let me check tomorrow and see what the deal is.
I will be starting Plymouth university in September, so would love to run at this upcoming parkrun. I also don't mind some volunteering if you still need some help.
There is a meeting being planned on the 12th September, to discuss volunteering and new volunteers are welcome to come along.
Please PM me for details of the meeting

Only 2 days and 13 hours till Plymouths first park run starts. Volunteers are still welcome, please visit the following page for details about the run and on how to volunteer.
