Advice for visitors

There will be some disruption to walking routes from October 2018 to March 2019 .

This is because of scrub removal and tree-thinning work in the areas below and between Pale Plantation and Barnwood.

We advise you to:

  • check what areas of the park are open or closed
  • plan your walks around the park as layouts will change over time
  • keep dogs under control or on leads

For more information see our Stoke Park restoration works page.

If you’ve any queries email stoke.park@bristol.gov.uk.

The works contractor will also be available to provide information and answer queries.
