Beautiful spot by the river

We found this quite late on in the day but enjoyed a short walk round the gardens and the great views of Putney Bridge. Well worth a visit.

We got some food, escaped the day trippers, and went to the park next to the river to enjoy the beautiful day.

Lovely pretty place to relax and take in views. Only issue was that it was incredibly busy so not that quiet the day I visited. But definitely worth looking at.

You need to pay 1.50 pound for adult and 40 p for children to enter the park and dogs are not allowed. I like this as you don't have to worry about the poo on the grass and the park is less crowded as well. The park is beside the river and there are some ducks came up to the... More

On 11 July 2015, the tranquil Parade Gardens in Bath, perfect for cream tea while lazing in the afternoon summer sun, was transformed into a Brazilian-themed carnival - complete to fervent drumming, samba dancing and singing. The multicultural mix of people of all ages provided a rainbow of vibrant colour against the pale Bath limestone buildings. The parade through the... More

There is a fee to enter this park/garden and it is well worth it. Locals get in free however :-) The bandstand often has live music. The cafe is very good. The gardens are very well manicured. Views of the river, weir and Abbey. A little bit of exclusivity in the heart of the city!

This is a perfect place to relax and have a picnic, and it's really close to the train station. I don't think it's open in the autumn/winter though...

This is a very pretty park with a bandstand in the middle covered with roses. The park has many flowers and chairs can be rented out to lounge along the river and enjoy the sunshine.
