Green Squares & Secret Gardens

Organised by:


Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th June

The aim is to make this a fun and interesting event for families and all age groups. One ticket (£5.00 and free for those under 16) gives entry to all the participating gardens on both days. The ticket price is reduced to £3.00 pp for groups of 8 or more who buy in advance. Ticket holders will be given a map showing the location of the gardens, a booklet with information about them, a tree trail in St Andrew’s churchyard, and perhaps most intriguing of all, a list of ‘points of interest’ to be discovered as they walk around. There should be plenty to keep all age groups entertained.


Please be aware that the gardens choose when they will be open, so do check before going.


This is also an opportunity for the garden owners to raise money, so there may be entertainments, refreshments or stalls selling cakes, plants etc.


From 1st May information will be on the CHIS website ( and on the CHIS notice board at the Clifton Library in Princess Victoria Street, Clifton.



Tickets are priced at £5.00 per person (free entry for those under 16) and are valid for both days – so you can come and go at your leisure. Groups of 8 visitors or more will be able to buy tickets in advance at a discounted price of £3.00 per person. To apply, send a cheque made out to CHIS to RoseMary Musgrave, 4 Eaton Crescent, Clifton, BS8 2EJ

On both Saturday and Sunday from 11.00 a.m. tickets will be on sale outside the Arch House Deli, which is between Victoria Square and Boyce’s Avenue, as well as at the entrance to most of the gardens.

We are sorry, only assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens.



Recently the area has become a Residents Parking Zone. This means that on Saturday 9th June there will be a limited number of parking places. From 1st May current information about Park and Ride buses and local car parks will be available on the CHIS website ( or click the link at the top of this page. There is a large multi-storey car park, within walking distance, at the top of Jacob’s Wells Road.

On Sunday 10th June the residents parking restrictions do not apply and one can park anywhere.
