Welcome To The Park

The Centre occupies a 15 acre site on the main bus route through Knowle. It opened in 2000 as a hub of community activity including learning, business, support services and leisure.

Local people are at the heart of everything that goes on. The buildings are set in a pleasant environment and offer good facilities to accommodate a wide range of ages and interests.

The Park tries to offer something for everyone and everyone who uses the site is seen as equally important.

The Centre sits within the Children’s and Young People’s Service (CYPS) of Bristol City Council and is run by a small management team.

The Centre is open 7 days a week.
Monday to Friday 8am – 10pm. Weekends 9am – 4pm. Extended opening times can be arranged.
