Brabazon Park

The Largest New Urban Public Park in the South West for Over 50 Years

A brand new 15-acre public park for North Bristol
A 2.5-acre lake
A part of over 86 acres of new green parks and public spaces planned for Brabazon

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.

A place to socialise and exercise

Brabazon Park will be a place for people of every generation. There will be quiet shaded paths to catch a moment of peace. There will be lakeside viewing spots to watch the world go by. There will be exercise areas and social hubs, kiosks, cafes and kids’ play spaces. It will have public platforms for culture, art and performance, where everyone is welcome to come and play.

Why not enjoy a game of table tennis? Test your metal with petanque? Or get fit at the outdoor gym? Whether you are meandering along the Heritage Trail, watching your little ones in the woodland playground or finding your new favourite coffee spot on the lakeside boardwalk, Brabazon Park will be the social heart of the most exciting new city district in the South West.

Construction is due to commence in 2023, with the Park expected to open in sections from 2024. And much more green space is coming over the horizon: over the next 20 years, a total of over 86 acres of parks, playgrounds, landscaped gardens, sports fields and public squares are planned for the neighbourhood.
