Detailed Description

Redland Green is a small, irregularly shaped public park. Its southern section is on flat ground. Its northern section has the steeply sloping sides of a small gully. The park is mostly grassland, crossed by paved footpaths. Avenues of plane trees have been planted along some of these paths. There is a well-kept bowling green in the centre of the park, and a children's play area to the north of that.

Redland Green is maintained by the Parks Department of Bristol City Council. The grass is cut regularly, and the whole area is kept clean and tidy.
