Planning your visit

Eastville Park is a large Victorian park with a range of facilities 2 miles north-east of Bristol city centre. It is a great place to relax surrounded by a spacious and diverse landscape. There is a large ornamental lake, tennis courts, bowling green, children’s play area, woodlands and wildflower meadows. It connects via the lovely Frome Valley Walkway, to Snuff Mills and Oldbury Court Estate. It is the reason why many people choose to live in Eastville and Fishponds.

There is a lot of space for picnics and barbecues but please:

  • Put any disposable barbecues on a heatproof surface – not directly on the grass
  • Take all your waste home with you

There are limited bins in the park for small waste items and dog poo, any rubbish left in bags next to bins is likely to be raided by animals before the council teams can collect it.

On this site, you can learn more about the park’s history, its unique wildlife or some of the amazing events happening in the park. You can also browse some stunning photography and find new ways to get involved in local groups.

This website is hosted and run by Friends of Eastville Park.
