Eastwood Farm Local Nature Reserve

Eastwood Farm Local Nature Reserve is a little known wildlife haven by the side of the River Avon in Brislington, Bristol.

The Friends of Eastwood Farm

We are a group of local residents who have been working alongside Bristol City Council over the last few years to look after the nature reserve. Much of our work involves striking a balance between enabling visitors to get close to nature, and enabling nature to take its course. The site has water meadows and woodland that give the feeling of being in the countryside even though your are still within the city boundaries.

There is also a children’s play area adjacent to Eastwood Road which was rebuilt in the winter of 2021/22 with funding raised by Friends of Eastwood Farm.

The nature reserve, play area and the adjacent riverside bar (Beeses) together provide a facility that everyone in Brislington can enjoy and be proud to have in their area.

Eastwood Farm Local Nature Reserve

Eastwood Farm is owned by Bristol City Council and managed by Bristol Parks. It was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in January 2008. Formerly farmland, part of the site was used for landfill in the 1970s and there was a plan to build a road acoss it.

Now it is a beautiful open space enjoyed by people and wildlife.

Take a walk along the watermeadows and you could see swans, kingfishers, coots, buzzards, squirrels, herons, mallards, moorhens, and much more.

The links below will tell you more about the site but it would be far better to pay us a visit!
