“Walking or biking along the riverside of the Ouse.”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Walking or biking along the riverside of the Ouse. Free of cars, passing through green grass and park where you can picknick, play sports or just read your book on a bench.
I personally walked on both side of the river. The side from city center to university has more regularly benches to rest and enjoy the view of ships, kayak, river boats passing. Lot of gooses and ducks with their babies.

“Running Track”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We used the walk as our running track and very much enjoyed it (though we had to double-back a few times for length). It's a beautiful area. The only problems are the stairs to cross the river and all the smokers, but that seems to be a problem with the whole country. I've been all over the world, but have never seen a nation so addicted to tobacco as the UK.

“2 part walk nice views”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

from ouse bridge (the stone one) riverside walk goes past the park hotel down loads of steps so no good for pushchairs,wheelchairs the walk goes into riveside gardens a few planted gardens and benches .walk through the top end of the garden look across the river you see the back of the guild hall (council chambers)and the boat yard next door.if you walk on under the road bridge near the round tower go up the steps across the bridge(lendal bridge) you can go down the steep steps at side of bridge or walk on abit further (to the gates at museum gardens)go down the slope takes you to the boat yard(you can hire boats/take a boat trip from here)keep walking to part two of the riverside walk the walk is called dame judi dench walk .this walk by the riverside the big fence is the back of the museum gardens(refreshments/toilets just inside the gates place full of peacocks)back to the riverside in summer the banks are full of boats.there are trees and benches nice place to sit and watch the boats go by. The walk takes you to marygate tower and the marygate landing you can see part of the flood defences carry on walking you come to scarborough railway bridge if you go over the bridge you can go to national railway museum.bv go under the bridge it takes you out to clifton bridge and clifton ings.if you take the walk up the bridge you come to york youth hostel .alot of people who stay there take the riverside walk to get straight into town and you get a fantastic view of the minster and various times of year steam trains on scarborough bridge . Caution can be due to flooding and steep sides into deep cold water.
