Tree Trails are proving popular in Bristol. Recent examples include The Downs and Brandon Hill. Trails allow people to explore and enjoy some of Bristol’s fine – and growing – heritage of trees in our parks.
The Castle Park Trail was the idea of Ann Freeman, a long term user and supporter of the park. Richard Bland has contributed his usual extensive knowledge of trees. In this case we have been fortunate to have the input of Dave Trigger, the Council’s site manager at Castle Park from its creation. This 42 year role has involved planting all of the trees. Castle Park demonstrates how quickly trees can mature to create a beautiful green urban space.
