Brislington: Local Green Spaces
Brislington Green Spaces
We in Brislington are very lucky in the number and quality of green spaces we have in the area. Whether you prefer the hidden treasures of Nightingale Valley and St Anne's Woods, the broad river valley of Eastwood Farm Open Space, or the child-friendly play areas of one of our local parks, there is a place for each of us within walking distance. And for those of us who want to put back a little of what our local nature gives us, there are several groups always ready to welcome new members - see the links below.
Friends of Nightingale Valley
One of our loveliest natural resources and a great place to explore. Once the haunt of otters and nightingales, jays, sparrowhawks, voles, moles and kingfishers have all been seen here in the last few years.
The Friends of Nightingale Valley are always happy to welcome new members, so why not contact them and see if there's any way you can help to keep this beautiful place safe and healthy for the future?
For further information, ring Andy Grant on 0117 9850 366 - before 8.30 p.m. please!
