Royal Victoria Park, Bath

4.6
#1 of 18 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.

  • Probably the most amazing free outdoor children’s park I’ve ever been to. The range of equipment is vast! Several wonderful jungle gyms, with slides varying from beginners level all the way to this humongous tunnel slide which actually I’d quite like to get on myself!! With sandpits and climbing walls, a zip wire and so many swings, two double swings (for two children or an adult and a little one) one fully backed swing, lots of regular ones and even two of those big circle rope ones. There is also a cafe with toilets attached however I believe there is a charge for these so bring change. There is also a nice ratio of sunny to shaded areas. I’d happily bring the children here one morning with picnic blankets and food and spend the whole day !!
  • Its a wonderful park with something for everyone. It has a great children's playground, with everything you would expect, with swings, sliders...sand pits, climbing frames and more challenging things for bigger kids...there is a skateboard park, and a duck pond.
