A peaceful park , with the added bonus of the canal embankment to follow back to Bath bus & railways stations. The canal side walk must be one of the jewels in the crown when visiting Bath . Highly recommmended .

In itself so many aspects. And to walk to it from it there are so many pleasant routes. Good for a picnic.

A delightful surprise just behind the Holburne Museum, with lovely shady walks and bridges over the canal. Beautiful even on a rainy day, such as I had.

I walk through Sydney gardens a number of times during my long walks and it is the highlight of my walks as it is just very green, beautiful towering trees, landscaped gardens and the canal is the cherry on the cake.
