Riverside Country Park is one of Medway Council's beautiful country parks and an ideal location for a walk, run or cycle.

The park covers 100 hectares alongside the Medway Estuary, including Motney Hill and Berengrave Local Nature Reserve and is located on the Lower Rainham Road in Gillingham.

There are various habitats within the park, including mudflats and salt marsh, ponds and reed-beds, grassland and scrub, which provide a haven for wildlife.
The estuary has special protection as part of the Medway Marshes Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is internationally important for wintering birds that thrive on the invertebrate-rich mudflats. The salt marshes have a specialised ecology and act as high tide roost sites.

Riverside Country Park has received a Green Flag Award, the national standard for quality parks and green spaces. Winners are judged to be welcoming and well-maintained, with the support and involvement of the local community.
