St George Park

The George Park is a very old park in suburban Bristol that still has remnants of the Edwardian era. Its lush green trees and a lake with ducks and swans offer a perfect time for a lazy day out with friends and family. There is a playground for children in the park, while for adults there are plenty of fishing options at the lake. The park hosts events around the year, including concerts, festivals and several sporting events. There is a skate park too, in its premises and tennis and bowling activities also take place here.

Ashton Court Estate

A short hop across the Clifton Suspension Bridge transports one to this beautiful estate, with its 850 magnificent acres (343.983 hectares) of park, woodland, and superb views across Bristol. The centerpiece of the estate is a rambling mansion that once belonged to the Smyth family. Over the years, as the pages of history turned, so did the roles of the mansion. It transformed from a residence, to a military hospital during the Great War, before finally falling under the protection of the Bristol City Council. While the main building has undergone a few alterations over the years, its sweeping surrounds reflect the original designs planned by Humphrey Repton, an acclaimed landscape designer. Amid these verdant landscapes, one can find excellent nature trails, deer grazing close by, a pitch and putt golf course, and a miniature railway, among others. The estate also hosts various events throughout the summer, including the annual Bristol Community Festival and the Balloon Fiesta. Hot air balloons launch from near the grounds that surround the Baronial Mansion House every Sunday afternoon when the weather at its finest.

Greville Smyth Park

The Greville Smyth Park provides lots of sporting options for the young and old including tennis, football, a kids' playing area and a fitness club. It is also a good place to walk your dog. Lots of brightly colored flowers, shrubs, grass and trees make the park a pleasant place to enjoy nature at leisure. Incidentally, it is also one of the largest local parks of Bristol. Do not forget to see the Indian Bean Tree that grows here.

Bristol Zoo Gardens

This zoo makes for a very enjoyable and memorable experience, featuring over 300 different species set amid very attractive gardens. The seal and penguin areas have amazing underwater views. Don't miss the Wallace Aviary where you can stroll among the beautiful plants and watch birds flying above you. With a restaurant, picnic area, gift shop and a wheelchair-friendly layout, the zoo makes for a wonderful visit with family and friends.

Cheddar Caves and Gorge

Cheddar Caves and Gorge is a stunning, natural wonder and attract visitors all round the year. They are simply awesome, the two show caves, formed in the Ice-Age, are festooned with stalactites and spectacular rock formations. Look out for Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest skeleton and learn all about how our cave-dwelling ancestors lived. The gorge is equally impressive. There's a bus tour, but this place is best explored on foot. The three-mile round walk is sign-posted and offers some stunning scenery, plus Jacob's Ladder, 274 steps leading to an observation tower, from which there are great views over Somerset and even away to the sea. There are shops and cafes as well for your refreshment.

The Northern Slopes

The Northern Slopes is an approximately two mile expanse of greenery that is rich in biodiversity and forms the slopes of Bedminster, hence the name. It is made up of three parks- the Novers Common, Glyn Vale and the Wedmore Vale. It offers loads of opportunities for bird watching, tennis, exercise, cycling and family picnics. It has a kids' playground too. It is also good for pets. The park offers a great look-out area for the adjoining city landmarks like the Clifton Bridge and the Cabot Tower.
