St James Barton Roundabout,
Bristol BS1 3LY
The 'Bear Pit' in Bristol's city centre has for some time been an area that has attracted unwanted attention in the form of being an intimidating area to pass through. The Bear Pit Improvement Group with Bristol City Council have approached the regeneration of this no-go area in such a way that, rather than 'banning' people from loitering etc, they have adopted the forward thinking approach of making the area more inclusive.
Today, with thriving stalls, seating areas and THAT block as a centre-piece, the Bear Pit has transformed into an appealing destination for lunch, a friendly route for commuters and a great place to skate - ensuring the space's bright future.
