This is a great free place to just “be” with a friend. We sat on a bench along the river and had a delightful afternoon chatting. It is fun to watch boats as well as people walking and cycling on the path to Richmond. There is a bandshell/gazebo that has events in the summer for free. Bring a blanket and it’s your evening sorted.

This is a popular destination so can be a bit busy. It's a lovely part of the river to walk. There's a bandstand and a nice pub located within the grounds - also very busy! Lovely place to bike with kids (for a watchful parent) as the space is quite side and you can see quite a distance without obstruction.

What was once a beautiful park with super places to sit and watch the river has been turned into a public tip. I was really shocked by how much litter - bottles, food containers, cans, paper - was strewn along the pathway, and clearly is ending up in the river. I was always taught that if you have rubbish - you put it in one of the bins provided or take it home and put it in your own bin, Not just drop it at your feet. Very sad to see.

My favourite way to experience this park is to swim up river to it on a hot summer’s day ... get out and dry off in the sunshine with coffee and a cake and then swim back home down river.

Canbury Gardens among the most beautiful places to be in Kingston area. It has a nice and beautiful garden, overlooking the Thames river. Good for a walk, jog , cycling, fishing, or feeding the birds near the river. With free basketball court and big field for children to run around, it is an ideal place to picnic with friends and family. You can also hire a boat or cruise at the river. My favourite activity is to just sit on any of the benches around, and just watch the world go by.
Serenity, tranquility, peaceful ......... its my favourite place in Kingston.

p.s. : please avoid visiting there in the evenings on the weekends. There has been a growing nuisance of drunken crowds spoiling the area.

Great walk along the river, very peaceful with lovely views of the trees, and very close to Kingston town centre if you wanted to do a little shopping

Canbury Passage next to DoubleTree hotel! It is difficult to pass through because of at least 5 mattresses and some Romanians sleeping on them as well as drug users/alcoholics using Canbury Passage as their meeting point. The police and neighbourhood watch are aware of that for months and still nothing is being done.

Eventhough there are bins everywhere people still see fit to leave inordinate amounts of litter particularly after the weekends. It's so depressing.

Plenty of seats and very little litter so this makes for a great Thames-side walk that we all enjoyed
