Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The park is buried in greenery and its lake creates the perfect picture for a stroll. The scenery is magnificent at any time of year, especially in spring when the many colourful flowers bloom. You can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere here while doing yoga or simply reading a book on the grass. A playground and café add to the convenience for families with children. An artificial waterfall is enchanting, providing a pleasant backdrop for relaxation.

It is a great way to end a visit to Bath: a short ride up the hill and through the gate brings to the viewpoint on the top where can see the entire valley and recognize the spots visited; there are parking spaces along the one way road, a playground for young children and dogs running options.
A local girl suggested it and happy she did

Pretty park.Great views over A bit of a climb uphill but worth the view. Bath! Lots of steps down Jacob’s ladder. Take the path and streets. It’s easier. You can drive up.

Visit for the view alone. You will not be disappointed, believe me. The walk up can be a challenge dependent on your cardio fitness levels but it's worth it.

I live at the base of this park and it's a beautiful spot with a great view. Every day I see people trudging up the long narrow stairway to reach it (sometimes with huge suitcases!), because of the signage, when there's a much nicer, more scenic way to get to Alexandra Park:

Instead of walking up these steps (photo 1) turn right and walk to the end of Alexandra Road, you'll see a small kid's play area - opposite that is a set of steps leading up into the woods (photo 2) - head up there, follow the meandering path through the woods (lots of wild garlic at this time of year), then eventually there'll be another set of stairs leading up to the left - take them, bear left, and you'll be on a slope up to the first viewpoint of Alexandra Park.

It takes a few mins extra but trust me - it's far less strenuous and a much nicer way to get there than the narrow stairway that's pretty lethal when slippery and where you're encased between fences until you reach the top.

Hope this helps someone, and hope you enjoy your visit :)

(I'd recommend coming up this way, and then heading down the other side - by the second, main viewpoint, past the allotments - through Lyncombe Fields).

A great spot to enjoy the view over Bath. We didn't really take the time to enjoy the rest of the park. We arrived from the West and left down some very steep steps by the allotments to the North East. Not sure that I would have enjoyed the walk up the steps!

Great view over Bath from the south. The park is located at the top of a very steep climb, partially stairs, but a vigorous 15 minute climb. Take the underpass by the bus station and keep right and follow the signs. There are two viewpoints with largely unobstructed views of the city.

On July afternoon coming out o f the Royal Crescent this was the perfect stroll back to the bustling city center . I enjoyed lunch overlooking the gardens and the large trees offered a perfect canopy for a leisurely walk . A good way to ground oneself fever a morning of museums .

Potential a great view, but as one young child near me said to her mum, "All I can see is trees." The Council need to cut back the vegetation to get the amazing views back. Mostly it's low value shrubs and scrub so no great loss.

Fantastic views! Worth the trek by foot, but I will warn you that I am pretty fit (I do at least 30 minutes of cardio every day) and I was struggling up the stairs to get here! I think I read somewhere that it's about 400 steps and they are steep. But then you're rewarded with the incredible view of Bath. Beautiful!
