Celebrating Love Parks Week

Highlighting the best of Bristol's green spaces to get you outdoors this summer

01/07/2024

Join us in celebrating the parks and green spaces of Bristol this Love Parks Week, running from 26 July to 4 August 2024. Delivered by Keep Britain Tidy, this week-long celebration recognises the vital role green spaces play in promoting health and wellbeing, acting as a community hub, and improving the air and water quality around us.

Love Parks Week encourages us to step outside and appreciate the green spaces around us. This could involve taking time to connect with nature, utilising the space for exercise and creative activities, or acting as the perfect backdrop for a summer stroll.

How we are supporting parks and green spaces

On a mission to make Redcliffe and Temple a greener space for all, we’ve implemented several greening projects across the city to enhance nature and bring the best parts of parks into our streets and shared spaces. With much of Redcliffe and Temple dominated by concrete, we’ve helped to add colour and greenery to the area thanks to our vibrant planters and green wall, wildflower meadow on the grounds of St Mary Redcliffe, and temporary summer furniture and planters on Temple Quay.

All greening projects are part of our Green Infrastructure Action Plan setting out the steps we are taking to enhance the outdoor environment of the city and maintain green spaces.

Redcliffe & Temple BID has recently provided funding to support the next stage of the Temple Church Project. The project aims to enable Temple Church to fulfil its potential and become an asset for the community. In addition to our work with English Heritage to support this project, we continue to work with Bristol City Council Parks Department to discuss opportunities to improve the park. Supporting this project is a key feature in the Redcliffe & Temple BID Business Plan.

Redcliffe & Temple BID have also set out a plan to improve Portwall Gardens in 2025 to regenerate the space. This plan includes installing further access points, additional seating space, integrating a sound barrier, and planting wildflowers to improve the space.

We are currently reviewing our Green Infrastructure Plan which is due to be published later in the summer.
