You have the wiere at your doorstep, sometimes a live band. Shops not far away. Beautiful grass and perfect to share an ice cream, have a quite stroll. or just sit back and relax. I love this place, i come all the time. Summer and winter, Sometimes you have to pay other times you dont. The only request I have is that the park closes later!

I stayed in Bath for several weeks and admired this garden from above, but was reluctant to pay the entrance fee for a non-resident. You can imagine how pleased I was to walk by one day and find the gate open and the pay booth unoccupied. It was late autumn and most of the tourists were gone, so the garden became free for all.

The gardens themselves are just lovely and provide great photo opportunities with the perfect views of Pulteney Bridge, Bath Abbey and the river.

“Tired park”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

this park is in a suprb location but its maintenance has slipped. Gates locked, paths are poor, travellers sleeping beneath its shelter, shrubberies looking overgrown.
My guess is the council have cut the budgets to save money - you've got to do more than cut the grass folks!

These well tended gardens are a lovely place to visit and unwind during the summer months. The flower beds and floral arrangements are beautiful to look at and every effort is made in ensuring they stay nice for the whole season.
You have to pay to get in but this small fee goes towards the upkeep and management of the grounds.
A welcome break from the hustle and bustle of central Bath

“Calm area in the town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for somewhere to relax then visit this spot. Nice green area ideal for enjoying the river. Would be ideal for a picnic - I presume it is allowed. There were people taking graduation photos when we were there. Nice spot for that. A few sculptures around also. Spent a good hour here.
