A walk with friends

What an incredible job the council has done in creating this area. You can walk for miles with lots of ammenities and loads of parking. It is a great spot for families.

It is amazing that such a high quality venue is free to the public. There are life guards present for the safety of the public also.

Awesome way to walk off your breakfast from the Riverview Café. Plenty of sights to see along the way and things to do. Highly recommended.

At riverway there is a free pool where you can cool down or you just lay down in the grass and let the sun shine on you. You can also make a barbecue and shops are also not far away. I was there several times and I really like it.

Searched for a park run ( 5km free event ) in Townsville and chose this one. 7am start every Saturday so I attended and ran the route with very friendly runners and event organisers. The route takes you both sides of the river and is just the best....well played Riverway 5*****
