Bordered by Henrietta Road/Street/Mews/Gardens, this lovely wooded park is a great refuge of green and quiet in the heart of Bath. It's somewhat hidden, not really on a main street, but is a great place to go on a beautiful day to enjoy peace and quiet and green.

Watch the gulls, though. This park isn't badly infested with the marauding Bath gulls, but they'll be there from time to time. Make sure you guard your food.

A good place to relax and spend the afternoon lazily strolling around imagining how Bathians of the 18 century might have gone about their day (when they were around)

Preferred the Alexander's Park better. This is not grand but this gives you the unique opportunity of a pristine panoromic view of the whole of Bath from one spot. This is a well kept secret I think, as I couldnt find it in the tourist brochures; one of the waiters in a restaurant pointed me towards this.

This is a beautiful garden at any time of the year; I have taken a stroll around the park numerous times and it always surprised me with a turn of beauty or a mischievous squirrel. There is an area of grass and trees for those who want a stroll through a hidden paradise just minutes from the bustling hub of Bath's centre. There is also a really beautiful planted garden centring around a fish pond. There are a couple of benches around it for a moment of calm or a private meeting (though probably no wifi). The toilets take coins which is something to be aware of if you need to spend a penny.

I was hoping for a pool or stream or something different/fun. It's a fairly flat and small park. Well utilized but nothing special that I saw. Still it's a little oasis of green in a bustling city. I got the impression that mainly locals frequented it.

Henrietta park is our favorite park in Bath. We always park our car around the park whenever we visit Bath then walk to the city center. The park has very nice walking path and quiet enough for relaxation. If you visit Bath on Sunday or bank holiday, parking here is free which is really nice! Driving in Bath high street is very tricky because you need take extra care not taking the bus lane otherwise you will be fined by the council!

Every morning we would walk by this 7-acre oasis of tranquility our way to visit the city. The park was donated to the city of Bath by Captain Forester in 1897, on Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee.
In 1937 a sweetly scented and beautifully manicured Remembrance Garden was dedicated to George V, complete with a reflecting pool, fountain, and rose-covered pergola. The park is step-free and its green open spaces are well maintained, perfect for a picnic or relaxing with friends or family. Its well-shaded pathways are lined by magnificent purple magnolia, Sycamore, Maple, and Elm trees.

TIP: For the traveler caught short, there are also public toilets (20p).

Henrietta Park is a lovely urban park just outside of Bath city centre with numerous championship trees, including a magnificent purple sycamore.
It is a great spot to get away from the crowds for a quiet moment or a picnic.

This is another well maintained park close to the town centre. We probably would not have known about it but we were staying in a hotel in Henrietta Road and the park was just a few yards down the road. A pleasant place to walk around or to sit in for a while.

This is a lovely part of Bath to cool down, relax and have a picnic. It also has one of the very few public toilets in the city. Make sure you have a 20p coin if you need to use them!
