Just LOVELY! The views from this park are breath taking, the perfect spot to relax, have a nice walk and take in the amazing views. You must attempt to go up all the steps of the monument as the views up there are even better.

This little hill it's a great place to visit and take a walk. You can see the overview of Bristol. It's pet friendly place.

Lovely park, with swings, ice cream and beautiful views of the city. Bear in mind that the paths are steep, so may not be suitable for everyone. Also wouldn't recommend walking through at night.

This place truly feels like a country park despite being right in the city centre. I can imagine lovely, family walks here all year round.

This place is good for having picnics and all of you're into something like that, there's plenty of space to do so. It's also worth noting that if you wanna feed the squirrels just buy a pack of nuts from the nearby Sainsbury or wilkos. Just watch out for the birdssss

Central Bristol feels very congested so it's good to find such an open space in which to relax. Cabot Tower gives a great view over the city, the river and the southern downs.

A hilly park, so be prepared to walk up/down steep slopes. There are many meandering paths and benches throughout the park that make strolling through the park very pleasant. Be sure to work your way to the top of the hill to Cabot Tower (see separate TripAdvisor entry) for great views over Bristol and the countryside. The park is just... More

On a sunny day its a great place to go chill out. Can sit on the grass and drink beer, read, go up the tower and look at Bristol, or play basketball in the mini court thats down on the left of the park!
