Parking charges aimed at raising investment for Bristol parks are set to begin at Blaise Castle Estate, Snuff Mills and Oldbury Court Estate next month.
All revenue from vehicle parking will be used for improving and maintaining the parks which have seen a large increase in visitors since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Nearly 60% of people say they visit their local park at least once a week, with other visitors coming from outside the Bristol boundaries.
Most people in the city live within walking distance of green space, and exemptions will be in place in the car parks for blue badge holders, motorbikes and cyclists.
A number of waiting restrictions, including double and single yellow lines, have also been installed in surrounding roads to help manage parking at the sites and residential areas.
The new charges launch on 3 March and will operate between 9am and 6pm every day.
Car users will be charged £1 per hour or £3 for five hours, with alternative charges for minibuses or coaches.
At Blaise Castle and Oldbury Court car parks, overflow parking may be implemented at busy times, and these will also be subject to the same charges as the main car parks.
Further information associated with the parking charges at these three sites can be found on each park’s page on the council website.
