Parked in Shaftesbury avenue and walked over road into The rock garden grid reference a couple of minutes down the path, nice place for a picnic. Chips by the sea makes the trip worth while.WAYNE ROWLETT24/03/2019
Pleanty of roadside parking on Shaftesbury Ave opposite, then into the Rock Gardens.jonglew26/11/2018
Went to Rock Gardens and Leys Road. Why? Difficult to say.clivevilla15/04/2018
Short walk from estate, not really worth the lengthy detour.rhalstead02/04/2018
an easy walk up the road after parking on a side road easiest bag evercolinfielding26/02/2018
A long drive for a very insignificant top. Parked on the road to the golf club as Shaftesbury Av being dug upCampbell Singer26/02/2018
Easy to get to in nice rock gardens. A short stroll gives supprising views noth for these urban sumits, strange being below the high ground of the reservoir but no access and not natural ground.Walkingthedog12/02/2018
Walked from Gynn Square with wife and dog via King George Ave to the Rock Gardens and grassy 'summit'. Crossing Devonshire Road was the main hazard!!John Eley01/01/2018
Quick visit to HP in The Rock Garden, with C.PeterD23/12/2017
Stroll in the park to the summit with dad - on a gloriously sunny autumnal day, of exceptional clarity - following a coastal drive including Blackpool prom, heading up to Karen's at Windermere for dinner (and via Carnforth's Brief Encounter tea room)Chris Pearson01/11/2016
I walked up the road to the water tower, and then round and along paths to the summit.Alancache04/10/2016
Between trains from and to Preston. 50 mins is more than enough time to have a leisurely stroll from Layton sampling the delights of this hill. Lashing wind and rain. Up via Devonshire Road, back by the overgrown path and Regency Gardens.Jake99403/09/2016
Reservoir is higher but ground inside rocky gardens has a large sandstone rock which is highest natural feature. Not a drive by!nordicstar13/07/2016
The circuit of Rock Gardens and Keys road makes an enjoyable short walk - providing you can find the overgrown path connecting the new houses to the North side of Rock Gardens. The grassy dome between the fence and the twin pavilions is the highest point in the gardens. The pollen made me sneeze violently walking across it, to the amusement of passers-by. By the entrance to water tower in Leys Road is a way into the grassy strip between the two fences, and just to the left is the highest accessible point. The reservoir lies between Rock Gardens and Keys Road, making it impossible to tell which is higher by eye.Nick Down122/06/2016
On Christmas Eve eve. Domed lawn in Rock Garden. Saw this res. on the news earlier in the year. UU had UV treatment machines there to deal with some bug in the water supply.ngthack23/12/2015
Wet day in Blackpool? Parked in Shaftsbury avenue, obvious hump in rock garden near small building.mart079722/12/2015
Rock gardens - quite nice. Solo.simon and co02/09/2015

Through entrance gate to Rock Gardens, 50m forward is gentle grassy rise near path, between reservoir compound and small building.Aye Jimmy18/01/2015
Easy one. 0.5 miles from home a gentle stroll uphill. Difficult to gauge where the natural summit is due to the reservoir earthworks. the grass area to the N of the rock gardens top entrance is favourite.Stand on the picnic bench to be highest.gary.jones415/06/2014
Walked up from the Tower (to make it seem like an ascent of sorts)via the water tower trig.Unbroken blue sky.With Bridget and Lily(who slept all the way in her pram!)catman31/05/2014

Close to covered reservoir and water tower.arranc16/05/2014
Grass W side of path. Covered reservoir is obviously higher but obviously manmade.RHW06/04/2014

Walked from Cliffs hotel on promenade. Summit seems to be 15m south of stone structure in the Rock Gardens.Nick Caunt06/12/2013
Dropped my father in law off on his annual Blackpool holiday so decided to bag this one. Found myself stood on a pic nic table in the rock garden to gain height. No rocks in the rock garden.mick03/08/2013
Parked in Shaftsbury Avenue then across Devonshire Road into 'The Rock Gardens' although it looks as if the rock gardens have been filled in.Newton Maximus02/07/2013

Nowt to say.destaylor20/02/2013
Fairly obvious slight rise in rock gardens, just SW of the small "pavillion". The gardens looked like they might have been rather pleasant if it hadn't been torrential rain. You can park in the nearby Shaftesbury Avenue rather easier than in its London counterpart.wheresthepath16/07/2012
The OS spot height in the Rock Garden appears to match the natural summit position well - no need to climb any fences.jimbloomer02/07/2012
Visited the Rock Garden - only one fence to get into the reservoir from here, but happy that the Rock Garden is the highest natural point.garyhoney10/04/2012
From road. Rock Gardens appears to be nearest and highest accessible point.adrianturner29/03/2012
Revisit for photos for Des and natural high point could be in The Rock Garden. 18/01/2008 As stated before but in the area for work so almost worth the short detour.Dugswell212/07/2011
Never seen such a secure-looking security fence! Had to adopt the Marilyn baggers' technique of circumnavigation to claim the top. Nice clockwise route via 'The Rock Garden'signyred13/06/2011
Can confirm that it is a covered reservoir surrounded by two fences with no way inshirley pbgv21/06/2007
