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.

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.

It was a nice break from shopping and easy enough to climb the stairs to the top of the tower. Beautiful view of the whole of Bristol.

Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by right in the heart of Bristol! Great views from the top of Cabot Tower (which is free!). Take a picnic and relax for a few hours!

This stretch of greenery is nice place to get out from the city streets. Cabot Tower is located within the park, which if you're up for a bit of stairs, can be a beautiful highlight. Keep in mind much of the park is hilly terrain.
