A must for visitors to Bath. Picnic on the lawns, children play in the park and just get the fabulous views of beautiful Bath.

This is off the Wells road and you get stunning views of the whole of Bath and see the Abbey and Crescent and the beautiful stone terraces

Don't miss a quick stop at Alexandra Park - it quite literally has the best view and you can see the entire city laid out before you

Not well-indicated for walkers; the steps are not convenient. I would not recommend to go there with backpacks, nor children. But then when you're up there you realise the view of the city is worth the climb!

A relatively small park located on the top of Beechen Cliff. Accessible from 3 directions by foot but only 1 by car or bike. Vehicle access is at the top of Shakespear Avenue.

The park is round in shape, several established trees and shrubs. There is a play area for children, an area for playing 'Boules / Petanque', and also a Bowling Green for the local Bowls club.

For me though the main attraction for a visit to this park is the spectacular views that are on offer from the far corner. From an elevated position you can view pretty much most of the city. Looking west (to your left)you can take in all of the city centre and as you turn slowly to your right you get to see all of Lansdown and the ancient Iron Age settlement of Solsbury Hill. On a clear day the views are simply stunning and 30 minutes can just fly by.

Many locals go there for a picnic lunch and take in the vista
