bpflogo_whiteBristol Parks Forum was established by Bristol Parks as an umbrella organisation for community park groups and organisations in the city with an interest in their local parks and green spaces.

The forum is still supported by Bristol City Council but is now run independently and is currently the only ‘community voice’ that is dedicated to all of Bristol’s green spaces.

The forum’s three main roles are:

– to offer an opportunity to share ideas and experience;
– to act as a consultation body for the Bristol Parks service and other agencies;
– to influence decision-making, including the allocation of resources.

The terms ‘Parks’ or ‘Parks & Green Spaces’ on this website (and in the Forum’s name) refer to all publicly accessible green space. This includes the city’s wonderful large estates, nature reserves and various informal areas of green space as well as traditional parks and play areas. Most (but not all) of these are owned and managed by Bristol City Council. Links to maps and other information can be seen here.

Any community group with an interest in any type of green space in Bristol is welcome to join the Parks Forum. A list of current members can be seen here.
