This appears to be a public park, but you have to pay 2 pounds to enter. The gardens are lovely, and there's some excellent sculptures. A very nice place to enjoy lunch or a picnic. The views of the weir and bridge are great.

Beautiful gardens but would just view from the road above. Have never before seen that you need to pay to enter a public garden! Needless to say, they were very quiet!

This was very beautiful by the river and a perfect place for a picnic. The flowers were all out and it had been beautifully tended.

The gardens are a great place to relax or to view the Avon and Pulteney Bridge. There is an entrance fee to the gardens, it was only about 1 or 2 pounds a person.

The gardens are well kept I guess it’s because it does cost 1.50 pound to enter. With your ticket you can enter and exit throughout the day if you want to. Be mindful if you need to use the toilet you have to pay, it’s...More

It says it doesn’t allow dogs but there’s rarely anyone there to say you’re not allowed too. If you still don’t fancy risking it, there’s a walk way on the opposite side of the river which allows dogs.
