The northern boundary of the New Walk/Terry Avenue Conservation Area follows the line of an 11th century dam across the Foss. The Conservation Area includes the historic planned landscape on the east bank, the river itself and Terry Avenue on the west bank. It is complemented by Rowntree Park, the open countryside beyond to the west and south and the SSSI of Fulford Ings to the south on the east bank. The main elements of the character and appearance of the area are: 1) The riverside south of the city centre which accomodates a public cycleway/walkway with a wealth of mature trees. 2) Fulford Ings is a large open expanse of grassland in the river flood plain which allows long views and is used for recreational purposes. 3) The area at the confluence of the Ouse and Foss provides a mixture of leisure and industrial uses. 4) The length of New Walk south of Blue Bridge Lane has a high brick retaining wall adjoining the footpath providing enclosure to the footpath on the east side of the river. 5) Terry Avenue provides another tree-lined recreational route along the river.
