Eastville Park Car Park B

At the bottom of Eastville Park under the M32, Junction Two is a ready made car park for Eastville Park which will comfortably hold over 100 cars and it offers direct access to the Park Lake and the riverside trail and the main field. By charging people £1 to use this and all of the money goes to Eastville Park for infrastructure projects; the park could see new children's play areas, updated infrastructure and much more within a realistic time frame.
Eastville Park can be in a win win win situation and commuters in to the city centre can use this space to catch M32 buses as well such as the 327 from Yate.

Why the contribution is important

Eastville Park Car Park is too far from the Lake for people living in other areas and the park isn't getting the branding and publicity it deserves for it's place and size in the city. Eastville Park needs to emerge as one of the best parks in Bristol and this is a way to fund essential projects..
Eastville Park also needs a Café and there are good people ready to take action to assit this amazing park which is close to breadline areas in East Bristol.  Pride of place!

    Don't think we should inflict more car traffic on the people of East Bristol by encouraging people to drive to a park but is a lovely park and encouraging people to bike, bus and walk there to increase visitors may help sustain a facility like a cafe.

    Hi Hammy,
    Parks on the edge of the city are amazing but they are here to serve people in the inner city who suffer from open space poverty. Helping people in the inner city to access miles of large open spaces easily and effectively in a ready made car park which can be open within two weeks with paint is key to a happy city.

    Since I wrote this idea, Eastville Park now has a Café open three days a week and at the same location as this car park idea. I wrote that the space could easily fit 100 cars but it will probably fit 200 cars. This is the easiest infrastructure project available in Bristol and it could be open within days.. just need paint for the spaces, a meter and the railing and underpass cleaned. A new park area is also planned to open here within months. Please make this a car park and asap.
