Parade Gardens is a lovely oasis in the busy city of Bath. It is beside the river, has trees, garden areas, lots of open grass, a refreshment kiosk, band stand and some lovely architecture. On a summer Sunday afternoon there is usually a band playing and it makes for a very quintessential English afternoon in the park.

Well worth a stroll through these beautiful gardens and to have a relaxing drink overlooking the tennis and bowling greens.

Classic park right in the heart of the city, adjacent to Bath weir. You feel like you are stepping back in time with the ornate gardens and classic band stand. Beautiful place to spend a sunny afternoon.

Lovely gardens, but the £1.50 charge is a bit too much I think...It is not a big garden, you can walk around it in 5-10 min, great in summer.

we were walking down the parade as we were going for lunch. we were captured by the water feature and the interesting shape of it. Overall a decent size garden which looked well looked after and added that bit of European look to the city of Bath.

Early Sunday morning, free parking in the streets and gate open to garden. Lots of people walking around. Pleasant place to sit on warm morning. Can hire deck chairs. But grass is fine

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
