Supporting Families Living With Autism In Bristol

Until  everyone  understands


>> The main attraction is the 12 metre high Dome, a favourite with many of our members.


The Dome has a range of climbing nets, bridges and slides for children to navigate with an enormous spiral slide for those brave enough to climb to the top!

Over the milder months (April - October), NAS Bristol are able to offer members a relaxed 'quiet hour' at Hengrove Play Park in South Bristol. This is a closed access session for Bristol Branch members only with reduced noise, ferwer crowds and a chance for young people to explore this amazing facility freely.

Where Is Hengrove Play Park?

Hengrove Play Park is an amazing facility located in South Bristol. The park has lots to do and caters for a wide range of ages. The park is divided into zones aimed at different age groups, with age and size appropriate play equipment in each zone.


NAS Bristol has been working alongside Hengrove Play Park staff for several years now in order to offer our members a relaxed and inclusive play experience at one of the biggest play parks in Bristol. They open an hour early once a month to allow our members an opportunity to experience all this park has to offer in a quieter session.

About the park


>> Another favourite area is the 'Secret Garden' which is a quieter area within the park.


This area has wooden structures to climb and is more landscaped with grass and trees to explore.


Follow the pathways up and down and round and round and see what can be found.


>> For older children, as well as the huge Dome there are lots of fun things to do.


Swings, roundabouts, aerial slides and a giant hamster wheel are all very popular during our visits.


>> There is also sand and water play, swings and slides and lots to climb on.


For those too small for the dome, there is a lovely pirate ship play area with lots to play with.



Important Information


> Please note; there may be a slight delay in the opening of the dome as safety inspections need to be carried out.


> Water may be on during our session, so swim wear or a change of clothes may be needed.


> Our NAS Bristol volunteer who covers this session has children with autism themselves, so are unable to remain by the gate to let people

  in/out. They do keep checking the gate and will return as quickly as possible when needed - please be patient.


> Parents must remain responsible for their own children at all times during the session


> We ask members to follow park rules to ensure a fun and safe session is had by all.
