The river walk near Clifton Bridge is a great dog walk for dogs, as there are plenty of open spaces for frolicking, small beach areas for swimming, and plenty of other dogs to meet. Parking is available in the small parking lot before Government House Road, but if it's full, plenty of parking is available in the parking lot for Homestead Park via Shipton Road. Dogs must be on a lead through the park, but it’s a lovely place and it makes an easy short-cut leaving from the Water End entrance to get to the river near Government House Road. If you are a dog owner and live in York, or if you are visiting York with dogs, and you need to satisfy your dog's craving for stimulation and exercise, then this is the best place to achieve that.

York River Walk/Clifton Ings, York
3 years agoLovely walk. Steep slope down to riverside @ Clifton Bridge but flat rest of way. Option for path or field walk. Some cows on far side, but they’ll not bother you. We chose to walk up to Rawcliffe Meadows & come back down far side, but you can walk to Beningbrough Hall or further. Well worth the walk.

If you decide to walk to the Ings during the summer months, you might be faced with cattle on one of the fields. Don't let this put you off, there are plenty of alternative paths to avoid the cattle, and it's very rare they are on the main field people like to walk. You might find them more on the second field where the bike path leads towards Rawcliffe. The cattle does not put the locals off, but if your dog is a chaser, best to put him/her on the lead.
