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

For the 2nd time, I went to the Parade Gardens in Bath - OK for the small entrance fee (a charge for adults, concessions for either end of the age range is on offer and free for diamond card holders, who are the local residents) - this is a lovely quiet tranquil place to sit away from all the hubbub...

Walk along the park and waters towards pulteney bridge and then stop for coffee on the bridge to admire the walk you just took.

Had a great time. Took a picnic and ate in the park. Kids had fun running around. Everything was quite relaxed. After we went to the out-door cafe on the far side and had something to drink. You can even rent beach chairs to sunbath, if you want.

This is such a peaceful place to escape the buzz of the city for an hour or so. Beatifully kept, immaculately litter free and lots of places to sit in sun or shade . Refreshments available or bring a picnic. Well worth the small entrance charge for visitors but free for Discovery Card holders .

Have been here many times to this formal garden and lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves. So on this occasion was most surprised to see an entry fee of £1.50 each. Very disappointing. No wonder there were only half a dozen people in it, probably locals who are free. Two men on the gate to make sure of... More

The Parade Grounds are lovely any time of the year. On a warm, summer day, it is outstanding. Right in the heart of everything it is easy to take in with little effort at all.

Yes, you need to pay to get into the park during some seasons of the year. It cost a whopping £1.50, but I'm happy to pay it. The people who visit the park respect the park, they don't trample the well kept gardens, they dispose of their rubbish appropriately, they don't vandalise the toilet facilities, and you don't need to...
