Royal Victoria Park, opened in 1830, was named after the 11-year-old Princess Victoria; it was the first park ever to carry her name. Its 23 hectares (57 acres) were originally laid out as an arboretum, and it still hosts a vast collection of trees. Today the park has much more to offer, including an aviary, a botanical garden, flowerbeds, tennis courts, a boating park, a bowling green, two golf courses, and plenty of lawn for lounging. Look out for the park’s fine ornaments and monuments dotted around the grounds, including the obelisk erected in 1837 to commemorate Princess Victoria’s 18th birthday. The children’s play area includes slides, swings, climbing frames, a sandpit, and more to keep little ones amused. A visit to the skateboard area will entertain older kids.

The Carter's Steam Fair was great there! Absolutely beautiful old fashioned cars, steam engines and carriages. Lots of kids having a laugh and they are friendly, so friendly. These guys add happiness and give another place for people to come and have some fun and we're extremely happy and friendly when seeing dogs. Would highly recommend the fair. Great for kids and not to over priced...
A beautiful park very close to the city centre. It has plenty of parking and plenty of space. There is a huge playground at one end with fairground rides in the summer. You can BBQ in one part of the park, with picnic tables. The botanical garden is beautiful and very well looked after. Well worth a visit, the best place to relax in the evenings in Bath!
