Parking £1.20 all day. Lovely hack around the edge of the park, plenty of open space to have a canter but can get very busy at weekends.

Ashton Court is great from everything from walking your dog to a wedding. I have attended many events here such as the balloon fiesta, prom and I have always had a great time.

We went here for an orienteering event but I would go back just for a walk around the grounds. Beautiful open fields interspersed with small woodlands, and ponds. Great place to take a dog.
