Perrett Park is one of Bristol’s most picturesque parks and is an ideal place for watching the hot air balloons go up in the Bristol Balloon Fiesta.
Perrett Park is a steeply sloping site which forms a natural amphitheatre or bowl. At the top of this bowl a long terrace has been created, running along two sides of the park. This terrace has been laid out with trees and plants, paved walkways and picnic benches.
The park was formerly allotments, but the land was purchased from the Smythe family by Councillor C H Perrett, who donated £500 towards the £1,000 cost to make the park available to the people of Bristol. The grand opening took place in 1936.’
