We had a chance to walk around the River Dee area, seeing the river part, as well as the harbor front shops and restaurants. Beautiful area, very relaxing.

It's just a pleasant walk with many opportunities to sit down and watch the world and the river go by. You're not far from the park, shops or somewhere to eat and drink. Sometimes there is music and there are river trips on a variety of vessels. We did the cruise ship and intend to return for the 2 hour trip at some stage.

The city benefits in many ways from having the River Dee flowing through it. There are many pleasure boats to cruise on, which is great way to absorb some of the atmosphere of the city, and it's surroundings.
During the summer, you will also be entertained by the numerous musicians on the waterfront, whilst enjoying your favourite beverage.

I have read poems that people write about rivers and never knew why the emotion. Now I know. The River Dee somehow captures your heart, beautiful with lights and shadows and its easy flow. I could sit for hours and just look at the river. I can now close my eyes and visualize it and get that peaceful serene feeling. I took many photos here, the bridge, the people walking along, the park, the restaurants! Awwww!

In the Summer months this is a really pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by, especially if they have a band playing on the bandstand. My wife and I love to sit on the forms and just people watch. We usually go to the riverfront pub at the end of the river walk where they have an outside area where you can watch the boats and swans whilst eating your meal. It is also good to walk the historic walls that you can access from the river and they have regular river trips including a fish and chips cruise! There are lots of people milling about Spring through to Autumn so it's never boring to visit the river. There is a car parking area off the main road into Chester from the Welsh side as you come across the bridge over the Dee and there are disabled spots here although you can park anywhere if these are taken as long as you display your badge. One warning ... Make sure you set your badge correctly for the 4 hours allowed (at time of writing this) and do not buy extra hours at that time as this is not allowed - you have to come back on the 4 hours and then move your car and buy any extra hours you need. NOTE: It is cheaper after 5pm (£1.50) - but the car park closes the gates at 10pm.
