Royal Fort Gardens, University of Bristol

Another place that is great for picnics is the Royal Fort Gardens.  It is part of the Royal Fort Estate which houses the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS).

What is interesting here is a mirror labyrinth which was constructed in 2009 to commemorate University of Bristol's centenary celebrations.  The sculpture, named "Follow Me", consists of 76 vertical mirrors or steel plates.  The sculpture was created by Danish artist, Jeppe Hein.

True, it's not really a big space, but enough for parents to enjoy the sun while the kids run around in the labyrinth :).

Hydrangeas were in abundance, the last time I went there :)
