Giant heart shapes in Bristol parks help encourage social distancing

Councils in Bristol have come up with a lovely idea to help encourage social distancing in their parks by creating heart shapes on the grass which adhere to the two metres apart rule.

The hearts, which are three metres wide, have been spray painted on the grass with eco-friendly white spray paint, with each heart situated two metres apart from each other.

So far, 374 giant hearts have been painted on the grass in Castle Park, College Green and Queen’s Square in Bristol.

The initiative is part of #BristolTogether, which was set up by leaders and local businesses in the city to help maintain the spread of the corona virus.

A team of artists from Upfest – Europe’s largest graffiti festival – sprayed the hearts on the grass using an eco-friendly chalk spray. It will grow out over the summer and slowly disappear after several cuts of the grass
