Mina Road Park is a typical Victorian park located in St Werburghs. We visit with puppy Jasper and have fun exploring and making new doggy friends.
Jasper is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and almost 4 months old. We have been providing puppy visits for a couple of months and recently we have started to take him out for short walks. Mina Road Park is one of his favourite places to visit.
Mina Road Park
Mina Park Road is very community focused and popular with families, sunbathers, local workers on their break and dog walkers. There are various activities and festivals held in the park, like Picnic in the Park which is organised by The St Werburghs Centre.
There is a large central grassed area which is great for dogs to run around on and play. It’s very clean and tidy and the grass is cut regularly.
Mature trees line the paths with benches to relax on and watch your dog play with their doggy friends. On our visit today Jasper has met a Yorkie and Miniature Schnauzer.
The walls around the park have colourful graffiti and street art.
The park has a river running through it, Horfield Brook. There are viewing platforms, planting and decorative bridges. It’s a nice place for a dog to paddle but on this occasion Jasper is happy just observing the running water.
Other facilities at the park include a playground, basketball court and exotic cast-iron urinal.
We had a nice time at Mina Road Park, it’s very sociable and Jasper loved meeting and playing with the other dogs.
