The botanical gardens are situated within Victoria Park and are a short walk from the Lower Bristol Road. You can visit the gardens at most times of the year but the trees and flowers are best seen during the spring and summer months. There is a tremendous range of trees, plants, and flowers and s stream and pond that contains a great variety of fish. Also within the gardens is a good range of wild birds and a large loft where doves congregate. You can easily spend a couple of hours here and the peace and tranquility are amazing even though you are almost in the centre of Bath!
