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.

  • Beautiful gardens in the heart of Bath. Very busy in the summer, very well kept and perfect for a sunny day. The botanical gardens have a variety of interesting plants!

  • Lovely place to visit for a short trip or a day. Play park is clean, safe, and filled with a huge amount of activities for the children. My opinion is that it is best suited for children aged 1 to 10. The rest of the park is great for a walk. The Botanical Gardens are lovely with fantastic would flowers and magnificent trees. Just a short walk but very pleasant. Parking is very easy for maximum of 4 hours: just park on the road next to the park.
  • Victoria Park offers a superb location where you can view the Royal Crescent and a place to relax during the working day. There is plenty of wide open space to avoid the folk that gather here for their lunches, I would advise if you are bringing your car that you park it in the Royal Avenue as the crescent itself is very hard to find a space in. The City tour bus stops here regularly as do the non-tourist buses so the transport links are very good, while there, check out the adventure golf and the Victoria Park bandstand.
