St Andrews Park Bristol with Paddling Pool

St Andrews Park Bristol
Off of Effingham Road or Sommerville Road
Near Gloucester Road

St Andrews Park isn’t central, but it is only a 15-20 minute bus journey from Central Bristol on the well serviced 75/76 route. Nearest stop is the old swimming baths, now home to Bishopston Library.

It’s a traditional Victorian park in one of the most affluent areas of Bristol.

It has a dog-free children’s play area, with sand, climbing frames and plenty of seating area.

It is most well-known for having a children’s paddling pool, which is open from the first May bank holiday of the year through to September.

The park does still have public toilets – the kind you really don’t want to touch anything in – open Monday to Sunday: 8.15am to 6.15pm.

It’s a lovely park, well worth the trudge, but best very early in the morning before the masses descend.
