Award-winning Riverside Park lies on the banks of the River Tay in the heart of our Fair City of Perth. It encompasses three different areas: Norrie Miller Walk, Rodney Garden and Bellwood Park, each with its own distinctive character. Visitors and locals alike can enjoy a beautiful curcular walk that takes you along Tay Street, across the walkway of the railway bridge, through Riverside Park and back across Quen's Bridge (or Perth Bridge if you want a longer stroll). As well as crossing the mighty Tay, highlights of the route include wildlife watching - there are populations of otters and beavers living in the riverside, and many species of bird can regularly be seen. The walk also encompasses much of Perth's Public Art Trail; 10 of the sculptures can be seen in Riverside Park and 6 are on Tay Street.
Uniquely, Riverside Park won the RHS Britain in Bloom Award for best park in the UK for two years in a row (2018 and 2019). To learn more about why it is so greatly loved, check out the details here:
