My children LOVE this park. There's so much to do and see and it's great almost any time of year. The playground is world class. There are trails and things like crazy golf as well. Too bad you have to pay for parking and now for the toilets as well.

With a backdrop of the Royal Crescent, it doesn't get better, or more "Georgian" than this! The top part is private (immediately in front of the Royal Crescent & owned by the residents), but below the Ha-ha it is public & very spacious.

Lovely park you can walk through on the way up to Royal Crescent. Visit the Princess Victoria statue, opened by her when she was 21.

I was surprised there was a entrance fee for this town park. However, the grounds are lovely and there are clean public washrooms for 20 pence.

I have visited the park many times with my children over the years, as they have an amazing adventure playground and it's all free! Worth making a trip for if at a loose end and a tight budget during the holidays!

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.
