Always a pleasure to walk in Canbury Gardens and plenty of grass space to crash out and chill out. By the River Thames is so relaxing. Try the Boaters Inn for refreshments.

A little "gem" and oasis in Kingston. What a lovely place to just relax and unwind. There's a little cafe or a restaurant should you get hungry or thirsty.

Pleasant tree lined area, ideal for strolling with dogs or sitting by the river on a Summer's day. Beautiful row of old plane trees for shade and a few benches for seating. Cafe and pub for refreshments, band playing on Summer Sundays.
