ParkWork offers training and skills development for people who need additional support to secure permanent employment, while improving the maintenance and management of Bristol’s parks.

Parkworks_LargeParkWork trains low skilled people in difficult circumstances to create routes to employment.

Work carried out is additional to the scheduled maintenance works carried by Bristol Parks.

There is also an opportunity for volunteers to gain experience and training while working with ParkWork teams.

Please contact ParkWork coordinator Joe McKenna or Bristol Parks Forum if you have projects or tasks that ParkWork teams could get involved with.

Work on our list includes 70+ tasks such as:
• Railway Path scrub clearance
• Stoke Park fencing
• Fonthill Park makeover
• Ashton Court paths
• Gaunts Ham Park painting
• Lake Mead Grove painting play equipment
