A modern reimagining of Britain’s historic tradition of urban parks
The design of the Park takes inspiration from aviation engineering, aiming to capture the historical, cultural and ecological uniqueness of the former airfield. One of the highlights of the new green space will be the Heritage Trail, connecting the Brabazon Hangars with Aerospace Bristol Museum and retelling the history of the airfields pioneering past.
When complete, it will be the largest new urban public park built in the South West for over 50 years, complete with a 2.5-acre lake. And, echoing the examples of past generations, it will offer something for everyone.
Cyclists, runners and nature lovers will rub shoulders with families, dog-walkers and those simply seeking a place to unwind and watch the world go by.
A place to relax and reconnect with nature
Cycle or stroll along the tranquil trails. Take a seat beneath the shade of a tree. Lay out on the lawn or watch the wildlife buzzing across the flowerbeds. Make time for some gentle exercise among the green activity spaces. Or let the kids run wild in one of the natural play areas.
Brabazon Park will be a place for people to reconnect with their environment. New pedestrian and cycling routes will connect the community with the urban centre of Brabazon and YTL Arena Bristol. The new lake will feature aquatic planting, whilst flowers and grasses, mature trees and shrubs will bring the Park to life for people and wildlife alike.
