I finally managed to see my friend Amy and go for a walk around Riverside Country Park last Saturday. This is a very well known place in Medway which I’m pretty sure LOTS of people have visited!
There are lots of places to park (four car parks in total I think?) and there is a large cafe, which is only open for takeaway due to the lockdown. There is also a large children’s play park which is constantly updated so it’s great for kids!
Myself and Amy walked the whole way round and along the river which has some lovely views. I love Riverside because, as we aren’t close to the coast, It’s a nice place to go to feel like you are by the coast. There are a few different routes you can take but we usually walk along the river and onto the sand.
I liked going here because it wasn’t actually too busy. I don’t usually mind however, because of coronavirus, I am trying to stay clear of places that are too busy, even if they are outside. Amy and I stayed at Riverside for around an hour and a half. We could’ve walked further but we decided to turn back because we we’re absolutely freezing!
Riverside is great for riding bikes as there is a very long bike trail that runs through the country park and the majority of it is all flat ground. Myself and my friend Faith went on a couple of bike rides there during the first lockdown in the summer and it was lovely as It’s not something I tend to do very often.
If you are looking for a nice, not too busy country park to go for a walk or take the kids too, Riverside should definitely be on your list!
