Redcliffe Square Gardens Consultation

This year we will be undertaking some improvement works to Redcliffe Square Gardens. As part of this project we are going to improve the perimeter planting, replace the current park benches with more accessible benches with arm rests and carry out improvements to the grass areas in the park, particularly under trees where the soil is compacted and grass doesn't grow.

There are also opportunities to improve the playground, add additional seating, and some natural play features that can be used by all.

We want to hear your views on how we can improve the gardens to maximise its full potential for all its users. In particular, we would like to hear your views on the redevelopment of the existing playground area and how we could incorporate natural play features into other areas of the park.

Parks Services Staff will be in Redcliffe Square Gardens on:

  • Thursday 30 January 1pm to 2:15pm
  • Saturday 1  February 10am to 11:30am
  • Wednesday 5 February 3pm to 4:15pm
  • Friday 7 February 11am to 12:15pm

However, if you are unable to attend one of the sessions, don’t worry you can still give us your views by following the survey below:

History of Redcliffe Square Gardens

Redcliffe Square was built as part of the Gunter estate in the 1860s. The area was mostly farmland before the building development. Redcliffe Gardens used to be one of the old routes through the area, called Walnut Tree Walk.

Robert Gunter initiated most of the development of the estate. Much of the design was by his surveyor George Godwin, working with his brother Henry. The name Redcliffe was chosen due to Godwin's connections with Bristol.

This square was given to the Borough for free in 1949 providing its character was maintained.
