“Spectacular views”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you drive to this park and have satnav, make sure you enter Shakespeare Ave and not just the postcode or you'll get caught up in the rabbit warren of narrow roads that are not that nearby! Once there, you are able to drive in and park on the road that circles the park. It's a park in the sense that it has grass, trees and benches - it would be better listed as a viewpoint. Having said that, the views of Bath are incredible and you feel like you are sitting on top of the world. Not to be missed.

“Good views”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Alexandra Park is a lovely park but nothing special - however, what it does have is a superb view over Bath. If for nothing else, it's worth the walk up the hill.

“Great view!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

It is a nice relatively small park in the upper side of bath therefore there is a great view from there!
We were on foot so it was not the easiest thing in the world to go up there but if you see it as that you are doing your "workout" :-) then no prob.
The park itself is a small circle one an so it does not have much to say. Only the view is what you will get from that!
Don't get me wrong, though, you should go!!!

“Nice little Park”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Nice little park, not a huge amount of equipment, but enough to keep little ones happy for an hour or two and is always very quiet. Also has the most amazing views of bath so is a nice place for a family picnic.
