Royal Victoria Park
Royal Victoria Park must be the finest park and public adventure play area for miles; there really is something for everyone. The adventure play area is very impressive, with thrilling and imaginative equipment grouped roughly according to age group. There are slides, swings, elaborate climbing frames, a sand pit, tunnel slides, a large tyre swing and much more. A skateboard area satisfies the needs of any budding skating pro. At peak times during the summer there is a ‘pay’ bouncy castle and roundabout. Parents’ minds can rest, as there is a lost children area as well as an all day park Supervisor.
A pond provides the perfect place to float model boats and the old park tradition of duck feeding.
Beneath the Royal Crescent, you can expect to watch spectacular hot air balloon take-offs after 6pm. There is also a bowling green, pitch and putt, tennis courts, small aviary and of course a small café if all that’s tired you out!
There are plenty of perfect picnic spots a long with masses of space for games of football, cricket, rounders and any other game that requires a large open area.
Royal Victoria Park hosts numerous annual events including The Bath Festival and The Children’s Festival (May Bank Holiday weekend) along with the occasional visit from circuses and fairs.
