About us

We are a young and innovative charity putting Bristol and Bath's parks at the centre of community life so everyone can experience their benefits.

Our journey

College Green meadow

We were founded in February 2019 as part of the Rethinking Parks programme, designed to reimagine how we support our parks and green spaces.

We are just the second 'parks foundation' charity set up here in the UK.

Now we're working across Bristol and Bath to bring communities together through our parks.

What we do

Brickfields corporate

Our parks have so much potential to improve our quality of life. We are conveners and we work on the ground.

We bring individuals, groups, charities and other partners together to help communities get the most our of their local park.

We support grassroots groups and organisations and we activate parks in areas of highest need.

How we are run

College Green board

Our board of trustees give their time for free to oversee the strategic direction and governance of the charity.

We have a very small but perfectly formed staff team who run the day-to-day operations of the charity.
