I take my dog down to Riverside at least once a week. It is a great place to walk, to bird watch or to take the kids for a good time at the playground. Also, there is a visitor centre (very helpful) and a reasonably price cafe.

If you ever feel the need to escape to beside the water, then this is the place.
It's a lovely long walk, with lots of historical points and facts. Great for dogs, and for running along the river, especially in the summer. You feel safe running along the path even in winter.
The cafe is a bit disappointing but you can't have everything, right?
This is definitely turning into part of our weekend routine.

I love this place! You can walk for miles with lovely views and amazing nature to spot (there are information maps around to help you!)
Popular with dog walkers, there are sometimes areas the dog can get a bit muddy, tide dependant. Although the dogs love this! During the summertime, you really feel you can escape the hum drum living you can often feel in a busy area such as Medway. Even when the chilly wind sails across in front of you in the winter (wrap up warm), it blows away the cobwebs and helps you come home feeling renewed.

There's FREE play areas for the children which I feel is better than the norm and also a coffee shop which I believe is open almost every day of the year!

You can see right across the river to the other side which looks very industrial yet there are often many nautical delights to spot in between.

Definitely recommend a look. You could even take your picnic, plenty of grassy and tabled areas to sit.

This is a nice place to walk the dog, go for a jog, go for a walk, take family and friends that want to entertain their kids. The biggest let down is the lame cafe. The tea is not great either sorry. It should be one of the best little cafes around as the place can attract such a wide audience but unfortunatly the cafe lets it down so take a picnic.
