A series of walks for 2015 in St George to highlight green spaces on your doorstep.
Our walks and events to inspire people to visit the wonderful green spaces in St George continue with two walks and a family day this month.
The walks are all free of charge and are being organised by Friends of Troopers Hill, Friends of St George Park and Friends of Dundridge Park.
There will be activities for children and the chance to learn more about the group and its plans to improve the play area.
On Wednesday 15th July at 7.30pm Friends of St George Park will be joined by Barton Hill History Group to walk around the park and learn more about the history of this Victorian park. Meet at the main park entrance on Church Road.
Then on Thursday 16th July at 7.00pm there is a ‘Heathland Walk’ on Troopers Hill led by local ecologist Rupert Higgins. With the purple heather in bloom this is the ideal time of year to explore Troopers Hill’s unique habitats and learn more about the importance for wildlife of one of Bristol’s most important Nature Reserves. This walk requires prior booking, for more details see the Friends of Troopers Hill website.
To end the week on Saturday 18th July there is a chance to tour St George and visit many of the community groups on their sites as part of the St George in Bloom Open Day.
.. and a chance to help look after Troopers Hill at the Friends of Troopers Hill Work Party on the afternoon of Sun 19th July 3-5pm – see www.troopers-hill.org.uk/WorkParties
