Castle Park, in the very centre of the city, is one of Bristols newest parks. Created on an ancient, riverside site, with important archaeological remains, Castle Park is the biggest city centre green space with large wooded areas. Past and present mix easily here, from the remains of a great medieval castle and the ancient city centre to the nearby bustle of modern Bristols retail and business districts.
