Royal Victoria Park, Bath

4.7
#1 of 16 in Parks in Bath
Royal Victoria Park, opened in 1830, was named after the 11-year-old Princess Victoria; it was the first park ever to carry her name. Its 23 hectares (57 acres) were originally laid out as an arboretum, and it still hosts a vast collection of trees. Today the park has much more to offer, including an aviary, a botanical garden, flowerbeds, tennis courts, a boating park, a bowling green, two golf courses, and plenty of lawn for lounging. Look out for the park’s fine ornaments and monuments dotted around the grounds, including the obelisk erected in 1837 to commemorate Princess Victoria’s 18th birthday. The children’s play area includes slides, swings, climbing frames, a sandpit, and more to keep little ones amused. A visit to the skateboard area will entertain older kids.

  • Brilliant park!! Could do with some more benches and possibly some water jets for the summer or something. Bathrooms where not clean which wasn't nice but all around the park is lovely!! Amazing views
  • If you're visiting Bath on a sunny day, a wander round Vicky Park is a must. Check out the crescent, peek inside No. 1, then have a picnic in the park. It's a beautiful area, and is always full of fun. If you've got children, head down to the park (it has the best swings!), or go for a stroll in the botanical garden (which seems like it is from a fairytale).
  • Actually it isn't Royal Victoria Park, it is Royal Botanical Garden. OK , it is adjoining, but is fenced of. It is a wonderful place to walk around,admiring all the trees and plants, have a rest on one of the many benches or have a picnic under a huge tree, listening to birds singing or meet the many squirrels.
  • Wow what a park. Massive kids play area with frames and a sand pit. The skate park is amazing. Good for little kids and big ones too. There's a cafe but if you need the toilet you'll have to pay. There are fields and fields of open space. Kids loved it and would not leave. Did I mention the fields.
  • A wonderful park with something for everyone. A very large play area for kids, a wooded area for walks and open spaces with plenty of parking.
