Here are Joanna’s top-five Bristol favourites:
The shops from Lawrence Hill to Redfield
“I love the variety and wide selection of shops along this stretch of the road close by to where I work. Shop owners here are working hard to keep the high street alive and serve the local community.”
Windmill Hill City Farm
“Windmill Hill City Farm is the perfect spot to spend time with small children whether it’s for a coffee and catch up or a walk to see the animals and get some fresh air. I often leave with something that has been grown in the allotment gardens!”
The Feeder Canal
“I always find it interesting to walk along the Feeder Canal out towards Hanham.
Wild Place Project
“There is so much for families to do in Bristol. I enjoy watching the bears and wolves wandering about Wild Place, and seeing the excitement of children when they come into view.”
St George’s Park
“There is a real community feel about this park – with its different spaces for everyone to and the commitment by those around it who work hard on events such as Redfest. It’s a great park in the heart of the city.”
