Harbourside Alive

The national focus on promoting active lives is already demonstrated through Bristol’s year round sporting calendar that attracts hundreds of thousands of people each year. Much of this activity takes place, in some shape or form, around Harbourside.

Now Crest Nicholson, Canada Life and Bristol City Council are working together to develop new opportunities for healthy living with Harbourside Alive.
