Whitchurch Park

Whitchurch Park is the most southerly ward in Bristol right at the edge of the city and defined by the Dundry slopes.

A ward of real differences and largely residential going from private housing on the Eastern side of the ward through Teyfant and into Hartcliffe.

The schools in the ward are Wansdyke Primary Bridge Learning Campus Hareclive and Hartcliffe Children’s centre. The Labour government’s investment in education can be seen in the brand new schools at Bridge Learning Campus – a unique all-through facility with nursery, primary school, a secondary school, special education and a vocational centre. Labour investment, too, in the Hartcliffe Children’s Centre which was completely rebuilt a few years ago. Hareclive primary school and The Core Youth Centre are at the western edge of the ward.

Further transformation has happened with Symes Avenue which has been completely rebuilt – and though just across the border on the other side of Whitchurch Lane the City of Bristol College’s South Bristol Skills Centre and the soon to be opened South Bristol Hospital and the 50metre pool and leisure centre.

A current very contentious issue in the ward is the area green space plan which threatens the Pigeon House Stream.
