Bristol Parks – General Enquiries
Bristol Parks manage all parks and green spaces in the City of Bristol. If you would like more information about the parks or wish to report any problems or issues relating to your park please contact Bristol Parks directly. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0117 922 3719 – this is available Mon to Fri 8.30am – 5pm (4.30pm Fri). You can also visit the Bristol Parks website at www.bristol.gov.uk/parks.
In our experience Bristol Parks generally respond to queries promptly and try to help where they can, however, if you are not satisfied with the response you receive from Bristol Parks please contact us via email@example.com and we will try to help resolve your problem.
Online Report Forms
Some issues can also be reported online via the Council website. The forms are difficult to find on the new Council website, so we have provided direct links below:
Reporting graffiti, fly tipping and drug & sex litter:
At the moment these have to be reported via forms designed for reporting issues on streets, so you need to give the street where the park entrance is and give a good description of the location.
Drugs & sex litter: Report by phone to Bristol Parks 0117 922 3719. Urgent out of hours calls – Emergency Control Centre on 0117 922 2050
If you witness anti social behaviour in a park or green space in Bristol, please report it to either the Council via 0117 922 2500 or the non-emergency police line on 101. Whilst a police response will not always be possible, these calls will help build up a picture of hotspots and issues in your area and are extremely valuable in helping reduce antisocial behaviour. More information on the Council’s website.
You can also contact your local councillors and discuss local problems with them, many councillors attend meetings of local park groups.
