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.

  • A beautiful park. Perfect for friends, families, and couples to stroll in. There's also a fun mini golf Course and plenty of green space to enjoy.

  • A nice venue to visit in Bath. The war memorial inside the park is fascinating and the park itself is a pleasant break from the city center.

  • Lovely park, some amenities not fully opened or under construction, but great fun overall. Various sections catering for various needs, from sport facilities to a botanical garden. Picnic tables available, highly recommend the mocha frappe from the cafe by the entrance! As soon as you enter the park the clean air zone starts, requiring an online payment supplemental to the parking charges.
  • Loved seeing the crescent and park was big did not make the botanical gardens ran out of time
