Page Park is a 19 acres square park, with open green spaces, avenues of trees, sensory garden, multiple play areas, clock tower, bandstand and a cafe. The park has a wonderful feel to it, with a great sense of community where families enjoy the space all year round. The Friends of Page Park regularly host a whole range of events throughout the year, from yoga, to dog competitions, music events and children’s activity days.
At the centre of Page Park is the impressive clock tower, built in 1910, which is often the focus area for community events. Paved walkways guide you around the park, passing by the tennis courts, play areas and the enclosed sensory garden. This is a great park for a family outing, with something to keep everyone entertained. There are lots of open areas for your pooch to run around and have fun.
Bean Tree Cafe opened in 2017 and has been a popular addition to the park. Dogs are not allowed inside, but there are a couple of benches outside to sit at. Open 8.30am to 5pm everyday, they serve a fab range of breakfast and lunch including some interesting veggie and vegan options. The cafe is baby-friendly as well.

‘In the year 1910, the park was given to the inhabitants of Staple Hill by Alderman Arthur William Page (possibly Staple Hill’s greatest benefactor). He represented the Parish of Mangotsfield on the Gloucestershire City Council. He was a solicitor, a Justice of the Peace and he was elected Alderman of the county of Gloucestershire in 1910.
Nineteen acres of land (originally part of the Hill House estate) was given and made into a park for the people of the area and an official opening ceremony took place on December 14th 1910. Representatives of the county council were present as well as local vicars and a large number of local residents.’
