12 gorgeous pictures of the Bristol park named the third best in UK for a picnic

Wildlife to sports to relaxation - there’s so much to love here

With its beautiful lake, tree-lined walkways and sports activities, it’s not a surprise St George Park always scores highly in surveys on parks in the UK, and now it has another accolade.

The park, built on the land that was The Fire Engine Farm, has been ranked third in The Top 20 Parks in the UK To Enjoy a Picnic by cocktail brand NIO Cocktails.

The ranking looked at over 4,000 public parks and took into account the quality and breadth of facilities nearby, including toilets and shops. The study also examined the ratings of each park and removed those below 4* and those with less than 250 reviews. It only came behind Sheffield’s Peace Gardens and London’s The Regent’s Park.

We visited the park to see what makes St George’s Park the best place in Bristol to have a picnic. Here are 12 photos from our sunny early evening trip:
