You can walk both sides of the river and along the meadows which is a super walk. If you combine the river with the walls you can fill the whole day. You can get the boat down the river or row on the river if you want

We live half an hour drive from Chester and one of my favorite walks is along the Dee here.

There is such a selection of types of views, the older part of town with the boats along the river, the residential area a bit further along and lots of greenery and natural sites as you walk further out in both directions. You can even walk along a field as you go upstream from the centre.

The name of the River Dee gave rise to the name Deva for the Roman fort now known as the city of Chester. You can enjoy this river from its humble beginnings to in the Welsh Mountains, through Llangollen where the National and International Eisteddfod is held each year in the month of August. It then winds its way onwards to Chester, past Connah's Quay where ship building was once a major industry, past Mostyn a major historical port before entering the Irish Sea. During low tide some of the world's biggest cockle beds are exposed for harvesting in the outer part of the estuary.

A wander along the River Dee is pleasant, especially in the summer months. It has a busy atmosphere with plenty of people about. There are plenty of places around to get refreshments, and places to sit. You can take a ride on a boat, or hire a pedlo. If you walk through the Park into Chester you will meet so many friendly squirrels coming to you!

Head down the side of Chester's Roman Gardens to the Riverside and take a walk across the suspension bridge, along the other side of the river to the Old Dee Bridge and spend a few minutes looking at the weir then cross the road to Edgar Park where you will find Minerva's shrine- Goddess to the Romans of Mining, Arts and Crafts and combat warfare. Edgar Park was originally where the Romans mined their sandstone which built their city. There is a play park here too. Head back across the Old Dee Bridge and continue round to the castle or go back to Riverside and have a coffee at Hickory's. All great!.
