This little park was lovely to walk around with lots of little statues dotted around. You also get a fantastic view of the Pulteney Bridge and the weir. I would recommend giving it a look if out walking in Bath as it's so close to the main square where the Romans Baths and the Abbey are!

You can get a pretty view of this area while strolling around. To get into the gardens to walk right next to the plants does cost though.

I thought it was free, but there was a fee on the board at the entrance, so we decided to just pass it without entering. They are really small and you can see all of them from outside. However, if you want a great photo of the famous Pulteney Bridge, it is the best place to take it.

This park or garden was beautiful even in December when we visited. It was a welcome break from the Christmas market crowds and the evergreens and neatly kept flower plantations (lilacs blooming despite it being December) make it beautiful even this time of year. In the summer it's likely a lot prettier. Beautiful view of the river and the weir.... More

Nice gardens and a lovely spot by the river. You can get a good view of the Pultney bridge and weirs from here, but unfortunately the colonnaded area which would have given the best view was inhabited by people sleeping rough so didn't like to venture too close. There are steps down to the garden but some access points are... More

Built around and by the center of town, around the River of Avon, this is a gorgeous place to visit in Bath, a place to picnic, and a place to rest from the other temptations the city has to offer. The park alone is reason enough to visit Bath.

A small park near the river and weir. Snack bar in grounds open in summer months. A nice cup of tea.

We went to Bath to get some last bits for the festive season at the Christmas Market. While it was a wonderful time it was great to get away from the crowds by visiting this oasis of calm in the hurly burly. Even with it being the middle of winter it was a beautiful area and obviously very well maintained.
