Great place to relax and take in the scenery, the weather certainly helped as it was red hot on the day we visited, we would certainly look to back on our next visit to York.

A Lovely Place to have a picnic or just play or sit on the grass, very relaxing, near the river. Also a nice bicycle route by the side of it.

My wife enjoyed a nice, peaceful walk along the river especially up along the York rowing club area. In the evening as the sun is setting you can see rowers out as well as fewer folks. Worth the stroll!
