Great local place for a walk

Needs to have a tea shop in the park!, But there is a pub at the Mansbridge end for refreshments, and sometimes coffe at the Woodmill.

If life has been hectic, busy and you are exsisting as only a cog in the machine, then ladies when you are walking along the waters edge watching the coressing movement of fish darting though the clear, clean river water as the gently weaving water reads seem to hypnotize your senses and bring your self back to real you, the...

I really try not to take Riverside Park for granted. In under 2 minutes I can walk from my front door and be by the river. There is a pitch & put course, tennis courts, football and cricket pitches, playgrounds, cycle tracks, pontoon, pooh sticks bridge, fishing, ducks, swans, geese, large open areas of grass for lazing or running around...

I can't tire of "The Rec" as we knew it, in thousands of visits, since childhood, and my Nippers love it as much as me. A jewel, in the heart of my beloved Bitterne Park. A Summer Sunday walk, by the river, maybe to the White Swan, for a tasty nosebag, and a pint or two, of foaming, English, cask-conditioned... More

We often visit the riverside park, its only a few minutes walk from home. Well maintained and used, the only suggestion would be more lights - it gets dark in the winter, and its a good 20-30 minute walk from one end to the other!

Such a lovely walk along the river Itchen, Nice place to take children to feed the ducks and grab an ice cream, this walk goes from Cobden Bridge all the way to Bishopstoke if you wanted to venture this far, I have done it but cheated on the way back and caught a bus.

Having loved near here for over a year walking through twice a day I've had plenty of time to observe.....it's great on a sunny day, as long as you're not on your own, when the gangs of bored teenagers can make it a little intimidating at dusk. A good place to walk, run and generally chill out with a picnic... More

Riverside is really nice and i'm lucky enough it being very near my house. Its fairly clean, has a good mix of families, dog walkers and keep fit enthusiasts. Has 3 parks dotted equally along the route for differing ages. Just feel its missing something to really make you want to come here instead of The common, Victoria country park,... More

This is a great place for a visit. To amble alongside the river and see the ducks, geese, swans etcetera, is a great way to spend an hour or so. Luckily we live close by and so we have the pleasure of being able to take advantage of this place regularly. The added advantage in the summer, is the ice... More

It is a nice park with a nice walk next to the river which is fascinating . I walked there but I would definitely go by bicycle and try to ride all the way as it seems to be a big park. There are also quite a lot of trees and playgrounds for children to have fun.
