Welcome to the Friends Of Victory Park webpage!
and Facebook group ww.facebook.com/groups/victoryparkbrislington/
The aim of the group is simply to improve and protect the park for the benefit of everyone that uses it, children, young people, older people and YOU.
Victory Park in Brislington, Bristol was donated by Cooke-Hurle in 1920 to celebrate peace after the First World War.
Today it is an oasis of calm in a busy part of Bristol. It is a wonderful open space, with a wealth of natural heritage, a popular playground, and three football pitches. Enclosed by beautiful fields, mature allotments and ancient hedgerows, the park has a semi-rural feel and is free for all to enjoy.A great place to walk and run, enjoy a picnic, and pick blackberries, the park is a haven for wildlife and is linked to nearby green spaces by a series of public footpaths.Victory Park is used by local residents, dog walkers, runners, footballers, walking groups, local schools, scout groups and people interested in the environment.
The Friends of Victory Park want to get more people using the park and enjoying it for what it is – a beautiful open space.
