I like the flowers there, the fact that you can hide in the shade or sunbathe on one of their deck chairs, it really is beautiful. The cafe they have provides ice lollies too. Shame the kiosk in the middle is locked. Definitely worth going , you can feed ducks by the river and really have a break from the... More

Park with a view of the Avon situated in the center of Bath. Nice opportunity to catch a break from the tourists. Although there is an entrance fee.

The Parade Gardens have all the spring plants in bloom with the hyacinths in pink and purple making a lovely splash of colour. Even though it was a sunny day, there was a cold breeze but several picnics were being enjoyed on the lawns. It is a pity that one or two parts of the Gardens are looking a little... More

Right in the centre of Bath we found Parade Gardens, lovely little place for a visit and to sit and watch the world go by. Nice colourful flower beds and plenty of beaches to sit and relax, even nicer if on a hot sunny day and with a picnic. There was a admission charge of £1.50 per adult, was initially... More

Nice place! Beautiful gardens, colorful and welcoming. Picturesque too, can get nice shots of the river that runs nearby. Recommended!

Underwhelming. I didn't think this was worth paying anything for. Council rip off and particularly when you have to pay to use the filthy toilets. Ordinary small garden boasting lots of awards. I wonder what the competition was?

Very surprised to pay to visit a park just to have a picnic. We had paid for the train tickets and roman baths so took a picnic to reduce costs so was very disappointed to have to pay to visit a park just to have a sandwich. The location is pretty good overlooking the river avon but we had to... More

enjoyed a visit after shopping and great to see the flower displays and bandstand. quite old fashioned with deck chairs to rent. Free to Bath residents, otherwise a fee to pay. Quite fun to be here when there is a rugby match going on at the rec on the other side of the river
