Walk doesn't live up to its romantic name.
Sep 2021
There is a choice of terrain with this walk. Either take a level walk along the river or climb up the steep incline and walk along the ridge and back own at the other end. With either, one can then walk back along the river or cross the road and walk back along the pavement (and maybe grab a coffee in one of the cafes).

Sadly two things ruined our walk. Firstly the amount of litter was appalling - it's a long time since I've seen any public place so filthy with discarded plastic bottles, take away cartons, plastic cutlery, etc

Secondly, the climb is very steep and the path is not well maintained. Despite disclaimer notices from the council it's not unreasonable to expect a better level of maintenance that this walk appears to receive. Unless you are sure-footed you might not want to attempt the climb.

Well kept walk by the river Derwent
Jul 2021
Good walks with benches and facilities for the children. No toilets anywhere, however and the far side is only accessible from one of the two bridges..

A lovely area to walk along the river into Matlock Bath. Lovely bridges to walk over/look at too. Very peaceful.

Unkept
Jul 2021
Visited here yesterday for the first time in over a year and must say compared to our last visit the gardens looked unkept and in places overgrown.
Thought with Covid-19 the park’s department would have had loads of time to keep the place ship shape.

Matlock Bath - When can I move in.
Jun 2021
Extremely difficult to isolate any one favourite bit as the whole experience is just simply one great big adventure. This is one of those places that has to be seen to be believed. Derwent Gardens for the picnic. The river for a boat trip. Lovers Walk beside the river, extremely romantic. Lovers Walk up the hillside thru the woods, gently does it... it will literally take your breath away. Lovers Walk along the escarpment edge, electrifying, stunning views, sweet tasting clean air, on top of the world... literally. Kids... if you have them, keep your eye on them... SERIOUSLY.

Dirty looking

Had a little walk through here and we must admit we felt quite nervous. The whole area was really grubby looking and i doubt i would walk there alone

Beautiful nature walk. Completely mesmerising. Lots of off the beaten track areas to walk. Absolutely wonderful. Wild and wonderfully beautiful.

Nice riverside walk
Jun 2021
Nothing special really, but a pleasant place to walk - and nice to know that it is very historical too. The paths leading off the riverside path are very steep so we chose to avoid them! But I’m sure there are many interesting walks to be had!

Loved it.
May 2021
Being keen to experience the area, we decided to do the Lovers Walk given the variety of the landscape offered, with parts running along the river, a part through Matlock Bath and parts along the Tors running up either side of the town. Given this, the walk is a bit up and down with the ascents to the Tors being a little steep in places but with the reward being some great views. The weather was not brilliant when we chose to do it but loved being out and about given we needed the break and to be outdoors.
