Great views. The park is small but have the best views for the city center. The way to the park is not easy, on top of the ill but you´ll be rewarded.

Saw on trip advisor everyone was giving 4 and 5 stars so thought oh I must have a look. I know a park is a park but the park is rubbish. Yes, there's good view but if you wanna trek up for that then go for it. Bath is stunning and so many lovely places, I just didn't think this... More

Well maintained, clean and tidy park with a lovely walk especially in the autumn. The most incredible view from the main view point with benches to soak it up. Beautiful park in all seasons. Free parking is a bonus!

If you happen to be at the top end of Bath, then take a look at this park, from its lookout you can see right across Baths incredible sights!

I visit this park regularly - there's free parking, a tarmac path and benches to sit on and enjoy the view. The children's playground is also good (but I'm a bit too big for it now)

Climbed up a pretty steep path to get there, amazing views, not a huge park but pretty and well worth visiting for the views!

Make your way up to Alexandra Park for stunning views of Bath. Playground for the children and WCs if needed (pay to enter). A great place to picnic.

it is a bit of a climb via the steps to get up there, but you get an amazing view over bath once you are up there so definitely worth it.
