Gorgeous park in the middle of southampton with so many hidden gems. Walk alongside the river, passed the newly renewed kiddies playground, have a look at the miniature steam trains, passed the playing fields, stop off at the white swan for a beer and on to the winchester alongside the river if you so choose!

Beautiful and also accessible for all sorts of age groups and physical capabilities. Take a picnic and you can stay there all afternoon. Take a football or cricket stuff and a second picnic, and you can stay longer.

Great park to walk along the River Itchen - best done when the tide is in as the river is tidal. Families enjoying the sunshine, watching canoes and small boats on the river.

I walk my dog here when ever the sun is out.. Can see some lovely wildlife down by the river and pitch and putt is always fun filled... Enjoyed walking down with the dog and stopping at The White Swan for a drink before wandering back up to the car. Great alrounder

Riverside Park is a long green area next to the River Itchen and caters for all sort of sports from football pitchs to cricket, canoeing and rowing on the river and just plain dog walking. It is big enough to absorb thousands of local residents and is a wonderful place to spend a Sunday afternoon However down at the Cobden... More

Riverside park is a delightful area by the river Itchen. There are lots of seats, an excellent Children's Playground and cycle tracks. The best time to visit is on Sunday afternoon when both adults and children can ride on a magical model railway for just 50p. Buy your ticket from the kiosk at the station and enjoy a nostalgic ride... More

Always happy to take a walk here with the family, but I can't help but notice there are very few ducks / geese / swans on the water. Plenty of benches, play areas for kids, pitch n put course, outdoor centre and ice cream vans on sunny days. Lots of free parking too.

Riverside Park and the adjoining Woodmill riverside walk are beautiful spots for a walk for an hour or so. On a warm sunny day in the summer these parks are surprisingly busy, but thats jot a problem as it is a spacious park. In the winter its worth a visit on a early cold frosty morning as the river looks... More

You also see many people fishing. The only bad thing I can say is be carful when you take little ones,... More

Southampton is famous for having retained it's "in city" green areas and Riverside Park is one of those where walkers, cyclists, kids, families and sportsmen can mingle without tripping each other up.
