Owner description: Laid out 1933-34 on the site of 18th-and 19th-century pleasure gardens, this is a wonderful place to relax and people-watch.

I understand there is an entrance charge from Easter onwards of £1 (70p for children, seniors and concessions). We visited on a lovely sunny March day, the gardens were open and there was no charge, probably because there weren't a lot of flowers at this early time in the year. It is a lovely location having well manicured lawns, a path along a short stretch of the River Avon, several interesting sculptures, public toilets, lots of benches to sit on and a wonderful place to photograph the Abbey, Pulteney Bridge and Pulteney Weir.

On a lovely day relax in the beautiful garden for an hour or two. Centrally-situated and ideally situated to enable you to gain energy for more sight-seeing after recuperation!

Small but beautiful garden in the heart of the city. Amazing flower decorations every year. Deck chairs and cafe available, band concerts every summer weekend. Quite busy area during the summer months but definitely a must see place in Bath.

If you need some quiet green space for the children to run around or a sit down with a picnic then head down to parade gardens next to the river. It also provides some of the best close views of the weir. The flower beds are part of the award winning Britain in Bloom. The cafe is delightful with great cake, sandwiches and drinks. Band stand is used at the weekends in the summer. Small charge but well worth the trip.

The Parade Gardens look absolutely stunning. The road running past them gives an elevated view of the gardens, looking down over the lovely plants and flowers, paths and statues. Some of the features in the gardens are beautiful.
Unfortunately, I have only ever seen the gardens closed and locked up, so I did not have a chance to actually walk the paths. But lovely none-the-less, and well worth a few minutes to look and enjoy.
