nice park by the river, linking Cobden Bridge up to the White Swan and past the watersports centre and the pitch and putt. This park has a cycle path, a model railway, a miniature road network for cycling proficiency and a kids playground. The northern half is popular fishing spot. There are a couple of pubs at the south end,... More

Very nice place! The stretch of river is free to fish with a rod license! The greens are well kept and there's pitch and putt golf, the path starting from wood mill carries on to Winchester! I hope to walk there and get the bus back to Butlocks Heath when my dodgie leg is a bit better

A very well visited place to be sure. So many families, people walking and running, kids playing, dogs running about with their families. Was a great place to go and walk off some of the excess Christmas calories! =)

What a wonderful facility it is to have this lovely park which is (as it's name says clearly) parkland alongside the river Itchen. The pathways are well kept which makes for an easy visit for all whether pedestrian, cycling, with prams and pushchairs or for the disabled. It's at its best in late spring through to early autumn, but whatever... More

This is a great place to take your dog, or even just go for a family walk, there is a play park for children and also a skate park for anyone interested in that.

I do like to come here to run. It's got well maintained flat paths and lots of room. The only issues I have had here are that some dog-walkers do not 'clean up' after their dogs. This is a shame because this is also a popular park for children to play. The pitch & Put green is lots of fun.... More
