What land does Bristol City Council own?
What trees are in my park?
What did my park look like in 1946?
Was my park shown on the 1880s Ordnance Survey map?
The mapping system on the Council’s website at maps.bristol.gov.uk can show show you this and lots of other information.
To see Council owned land tick ‘Council property ownership’ in the panel on the left under ‘Housing and property’ and then zoom in on the map. For trees look under ‘Environment’. ‘Parks and green spaces’ and ‘Childrens play areas’ are under ‘Leisure and culture’.
Use the panel top right to look at old maps and aerial views.
