“Perfection”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

To walk in these gardens is such a pleasure. An hour in the garden away from the hectic shopping streets brings you back to life. A pity they have to charge for simple pleasures but I suppose this is 2012. You can enjoy these gardens from the adjacent road above but then miss the wildlife and aromas.

very pretty garden for a nice stroll with someone special. In November the holly is out and there is birdlife to enjoy.

“What a gem”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Parade Gardens is a little oasis in Bath, located below the Pulteny Bridge, on the banks of the river. Highly recommended for a quiet break during a day of sightseeing

“Beautiful park, better viewed from outside it.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

This formal park in the centre of Bath is beautiful - full of colour and well maintained.
However, it can be enjoyed from the adjacent road, which is on a higher level and so you look down into the park itself. To use the park itself there is an entrance charge, perhaps to help with the costs of maintaining it, but maybe also to deter the hoards of visitors who might, simply by their numbers, destroy the peace and quiet of the place if it were available free.
Also consider the Royal Victoria Park, just below the Royal Crescent - larger and more for families with children.
The park is just one attraction in a city of so many - to me, one of the most beautiful cities in England.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Surprised to see that there was a charge, to go into what look like a public park area. We stayed very close and every time we went past, it appeared to be empty.
