Impressive!

Definitely pleasant and well looked after. A nice place where to go after seeing that abomination of the Royal Crescent.

Great to walk around on a pleasant day. Good views of parts of the city, form a variety of angles. We even tried our hand at bowls - which was good fun too! Lots of activities to try, from tennis, to blows to crazy golf and pitch n put. Nice cafe with balcony and a pleasant walk to/from the crescents.

I studied for my degree at the University of Bath and have very fond memories of this park. I went back in April this year and I still love this place. It's beautiful and a wonderful place to sit and have a picnic, play crazy golf, or sit by the lake. Plus you have the fantastic addition of being surrounded... More

We visited the park during a self-guided walk of the city. The beautiful open spaces, flowers, birds singing, and tranquil places to sit and rest, all added to the enjoyment. The park is well kept and there is a huge play area for children.

Lovely place to visit - we were lucky with a cloudless day. The botanical gardens are very pleasant with a number of interesting plants and trees. Close to the Royal Crescent.

The only problem is parking, which is expensive and always full (the popularitiy of the Park!) I am a municipal park lover and... More

Stumbled on this park whilst walking around bath, it's beautiful. My favourite part was sitting on a bench watching the ducks. There were public toilets in the park, a coffee kiosk and a play area for children. There are picnic tables too.

It was a beautiful, calm and relaxing space after a morning of taking in other sites and lots of walking.
