YTL Developments has secured approval from South Gloucestershire Council to create a 15-acre sustainable public park at the centre of Brabazon, a new neighbourhood being built on the historic former Filton Airfield.

Equivalent in size to Bristol’s Castle Park and featuring a 2.5-acre lake, Brabazon Park will be located between The Hangar District and the future 17,000 capacity YTL Arena Bristol.

The developer says that "Brabazon Park will be a modern reimagining of Britain’s historic tradition of urban parks and the beating social heart of Brabazon, connecting the new homes and future workspaces with the entire community across North Bristol."

Seb Loyn, Planning and Development Director, YTL Developments said: “Brabazon Park is designed for everyone. The range of activities and attractions will bind together the new community at Brabazon and benefit visitors from across Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

“Brabazon Park is a new landmark public space, designed to be the heart of the new community for generations to come.”

The design of the park takes inspiration from aviation engineering, aiming to capture the historical, cultural and ecological uniqueness of the former airfield. One of the highlights of the new green space will be the Heritage Trail, connecting the Brabazon Hangars with Aerospace Bristol Museum and retelling the history of the airfields pioneering past.

Construction is due to commence in 2023, with the Park due to open in sections from 2024.
