From Bear Flat walk up Shakespeare avenue into Alexandra Park, there is limited parking but fantastic views of Bath over the top of Beechen Cliff.

Peaceful place to watch the world go by. Stunning view over the whole of Bath. Can be a bit of a trek to walk to the park up some step hills but worth it at the top.

This is the best view of Bath I have found. Nice enough park . Open areas and a kiddie splay ground. A bowling green as well but not much more. This is a place you come to for the views .

I wish I could afford to live in Bath and if i did, it would likely be in Alexandra Park. A walk along the various roads leaves you enchanted. Seen from a distance, Alexandra Park is gorgeous.

I went there with friends to see the sunset and the city view of Bath. You can see many tourist attractions from here include Bath abbey, the circus, or Royal crescent. A lovely park with nice view make us relax and suitable to go with family or friends.

Whatever the weather I'd say pay a visit to take in the view. Benches provided to sit and relax. Not too far to walk out of the town to it either.

This little gem is often overlooked by many Bath people as well as tourists as it can be hard to find and you either need a car to get there or you face a uphill walk from the nearest bus-stop on the Bear Flat. However when you get there, there is free parking and a wonderfull view of Bath.

A lovely little park with a great view. There is a children's play area, bowls and grass to let the dogs run.

It is possible to take your car into this park and leave it there whilst you walk a short distance to one of the areas which provide excellent views over the city, something that I would really recommend.
