A pleasant spot and an oasis of calm just a short stroll away from the hustle and bustle of Park Street and the city centre, this is well worth seeking out. The grounds are attractively landscaped although there is some renovation work ongoing at present,...More

This is a lovely park to explore during the daytime with a playground, ponds and of course Cabot Tower. It’s pretty steep but you do get good views over Bristol. I would avoid at night though, as there are often unsavoury characters hanging around.

Lovely view from the top of the tower. Good place to walk dogs or just have a stroll yourself! Normally an icecream van there in the summer!

Very nice place to go walking if you like hills, lots of dogs and families. Ice cream van near the top of the hill just underneath Cabot Tower. The Tower is defiantly worth a visit too.

One of my most beloved places in Bristol. It is an ideal place to escape the busy central and enjoy little bit of peace and nature. It offers a fantastic walk and ecstatic views of Bristol! We went during October which got very chilly, but...More

We've just visited the park to see the open air Shakespeare again. It is a really nice venue, perfect for the small gathering who go to see the show.
