Nice spot for a quick packed lunch or even a read. On occasion events are held here, memorials, festivals. Well kept and links the floating harbour to the Bristol Cathedral and Library.

College Green is just that a bit of greenery in the middle of the city. It is however the site of a number of events such as Play Days in the summer holidays etc.
