I used to go with my dad who was a keen fisherman and I always remember feeding a swan whilst he was fishing and then when I ran out of the bread the swan chased me and I managed to get into the car before the swan started attacking the car for more bread. So please please do not feed the swan here, I didn’t realise how vicious they could be, but I won’t be doing that again.

There is a lot of do an Avon Valley country park aimed at families with children, my best friend has an annual pass and regularly visits when the sun is shining in Bristol. There is a soft play and lots of outdoor play areas. For extra costs there are a few small rides.

There are a few farm animals that you can pet if they come close enough. They had a pig race, where the staff let you choose a coloured card (each pig has a colour sprayed to its back), if your pig wins, everyone with that colour gets a prize (don’t know what the prize is as we didn’t win)

It was busy with school children, but the river walk was peaceful & quiet – I can imagine taking a book & lying out somewhere along it, for a few hours.

They have boats to go on their lake (weren’t open when we went). You can buy food in the café which wasn’t that great so I wouldn’t do it again but there is loads of picnic areas making it the perfect place for a summers picnic in Bristol.
