The most gorgeous view in Bath, can seem a little overgrown but when you come at sunset that makes it completely worth it. Lovely hidden spot.

Great spot to get a view of the city (but the view point gets rather crowded) but the other parts of the park are good for a picnic but less good for a kick around as the ground is a big slope

The climb may be tough, but the view is definitely worth it! You get a panoramic view of the sea of Bath-stone buildings below

Beautiful view of the city of Bath. Nothing else to do though, which is a shame. A good day out for couples, family and friends.

Local for me. I often take a Grandchild to the park and if it’s my Grandson we have to look down on the station to see if there is any train movement. We were there just the other day and it’s looking very autumnal just...More

Parked for free in one of the streets just in front of Alexander Park. A steep climb up but well worth the beautiful view. Great place for a picnic. went down the steps on the way out. Public toilets 20p and not very clean,

Beautiful views across Bath from a really pretty spot, especially in Autumn. We didn't come across much else but it didn't matter. Worth the climb.

It's rather a steep trip up. I used the steps going up and the step-free route when coming down. Personally I wouldn't recommend it. However let's see if others with a buggies have conquered the challenge.

Thank you. It was challenging for me as I was wearing thick clothing, but it was rewarding.

Doesn’t say. You could enquiry with green spaces in Bath (google for email). Don’t see why not though if it’s in a respectful way (I.e disposed of properly, don’t burn grass etc)
