Bath Town Guide
|The Royal Victoria Park is a beautiful park located right in the centre of Bath, just below the famous Royal Crescent. |
|In fact the park almost serves as the front garden of the crescent, although the private gardens that belong to Royal Crescent residents are in fact separated from Victoria Park by a ha-ha.|
The park was laid out in 1830 in order to offer a tranquil alternative to the bustling city centre, and it was immediately popular as a place to be seen.
At the eastern entrance to the park is an obelisk commemorating Queen Victoria. And at this end of the park there is plenty to do, with among other amenities, tennis courts and a bowling green.
Also at this end of the park, just off Gravel Walk, there is a beautiful walled Georgian Garden. Restored in the 1980s, this garden has original 18th century paths and flowerbeds, and it is planted in accordance with gardening traditions of that era.
In the western part of the Victoria Park there is Bath's Botanical Gardens and an aviary.
