The place to see on Vancouver island. A little pricey but worth every cent. You can go anytime. I actually go I love winter when it is lit by the lights. It features the 12 days of Christmas...Fantastic. It is one of the true wonders of B.C, if not Canada, Cann spend whole day. A must see no matter what!!!

So close to the city, the royal crescent, and there is a terrific kids playground. The gardens themselves are a delight to explore. This is really the perfect spot for a family day out in Bath - and it's free!

Beautiful little gardens inside Victoria Park. It was a lovely walk with a tree statue, lots of flowers and a redwood tree! A nice afternoon break from visiting all the indoor museums.

Beautiful surroundings to unroll a blanket, open a picnic basket and relax in the shade of the trees. We visited on a hot day as a family but would be great as a couple or with friends. The bathtub full of flowers was a nice touch too! Also, if taking kids then Victoria park just down the hill is great... More

Looked nice and well kept from the street but was surprised to find that there was an admission charge. Didn't really bother.

I was born in Bath and lived 10 mins walk from the Botanical Gardens. I'm sorry to say it ain't what it used to be when Stan Hitt was Parks Director. Since the Council changed to Bath & North East Somerset, rather than Bath City Council standards have slipped.

It's a nice park, and the British do love their gardens. Nothing really special, but a nice, quiet haven. Lots of locals take their dogs for a walk there.

This is a lovely little part of Victoria park, really quiet and peaceful and worth a visit. Great to walk around to look at the plants and trees and water features, plenty of benches for resting!
