One of London's best recreational and tourism assets is the Thames Valley Parkway; otherwise known as the TVP.
Situated on scenic park lands abutting the Thames River, the Thames Valley Parkway is the City’s primary multi-use pathway system. The Thames Valley Parkway is an asphalt surface between 2.4 and 4.0 metres in width, is designed for two-way use and is accessible to all ages and abilities.
The current TVP is 40 kilometres in length, offers scenic river crossings and is linked to over 150 kilometres of additional pathways connecting all corners of London.
At the present time, there are still several “gaps” in the TVP system requiring people to make use of signed on-road routes where no public parkland route is presently available or feasible. Future projects and upgrades are being planned for the pathway system which will eliminate road crossings and improve neighbourhood connections. Extensions to the Thames Valley Parkway will occur as lands along the three branches of the Thames River are developed.
Whether you want to walk, run, ride, roller blade or simply just sit and enjoy the scenery, the TVP has something for you. You can view the Thames Valley Parkway network through the city's interactive CityMap or download the Bicycle & Walking Map as a pdf.
