Greville Smyth Park is an important green space on the edge of the city center, joining the industrial end of the harbour with bustling Southville and Ashton Gate.
We need your energy to help improve the park for people and wildlife. Together with Bristol Parks gardeners and the local Friends Group, we will be tackling lots of different mini-projects within the park.
You're welcome to join as a one-off, or to come along every month (second Wednesday of each month) from 10.30am - 12.30pm.
We meet at Rich's Hopper coffee truck next to the bowls building at the top of the park (also the perfect place for a coffee to end a session).
