Royal Victoria Park in Bath 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, a perfect place to relax or for children to let off steam if you are exploring Bath.

Local attractions and things to do in the area may not be open all year round and may require pre-booking. Please check the attraction website before visiting to avoid disappointment.
