“Well-kept, pretty park filled with fragrant roses! Dates to 1890's on site of old Crescent Inn. See the Benzoni statue!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Crescent Gardens is a small park in central Harrogate near to the Royal Pump Room and next door to historic Hale’s Bar. It is bounded by Swan road, Crescent road and Montpellier road.
It is also easily accessed from Parliament Street or the Royal Parade.

The park is small and pretty with a central glass-enclosed gazebo containing a once-forgotten but recently placed (1950’s) sculpture created by Giovanni Benzoni in the 1800’s. The statue of Cupid and Psyche was originally made for Harrogate's Spa Room Gardens.

The gardens got its name from the Crescent Inn (previously also called ‘The Globe’ and ‘Half Moon’) which stood on the site until it was demolished in the 1890’s and replaced by the gardens.

Crescent gardens are well-kept and blooming into late autumn with all its fragrant roses. Wide paths radiate out from the central statue. It’s a lovely place to stroll or rest while sightseeing the area.
