Walking along York's river
Take a walk along the River Ouse and see the city of York from a whole new perspective. Escape the hustle and bustle for the tranquil towpath and discover how walking by water can make you feel happier and healthier.
The picturesque Yorkshire River Ouse is rich in nature, edged in many places by expansive water meadows, which provide a home for a wide variety of wildlife. In York, the Millennium Bridge creates an interesting circular walk from the city centre via the tree-lined Georgian avenue of New Walk. The riverside Rowntree Park has woodland walks, an ornamental lake and sports facilities.
