“Great place for walks”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

We go for walks here every summer and enjoy it every time we go. you can even see the fish swimming in the water it is so clear. Great little park and small golf course which is great fun. You also see many people fishing. The only bad thing I can say is be carful when you take little ones, as there is not a guard by the water, but what I would add the children love feeding the ducks. There is a lovely pub you can have a meal and a good car park at each end of Riverside Park, so plenty of places to park (no charge as yet). A must place to visit without it costing you loads of money.

“Almost the country within the city”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Southampton is famous for having retained it's "in city" green areas and Riverside Park is one of those where walkers, cyclists, kids, families and sportsmen can mingle without tripping each other up.

“Nice walk by the river, plenty for families to do, or just a chill zone, your choice”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

plenty of space for dog walkers,, family areas and children's play area have been revamped over the last few weeks. Shame about the graffiti that seems to be springing in various areas.

“Lovely Pitch and Put”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

While at university in Southampton I stumbled across this park which has a lovely pitch and putt. I'd recommend anyone who enjoys golf as a hobby to head over with some friends.

“A nice, large free park for everyone”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Riverside is great. You have the river, with swans, a children's playground with swings etc, wide open grassy spaces. A separate cycle lane keeps cyclists and pedestrians just enough apart to avoid unfortunate bonding.

The teenagers love to hang out here, dog walkers can exercise their pet, office workers can escape the day's stress and photographers can find subjects. All for free.
