Riverside Meadows lies immediately to the south of Wallingford Bridge, which is a scheduled ancient monument within the Chilterns, and contains 3 known important archaeological sites. The area also hosts the annual Wallingford Regatta and Raft race.

The council purchased land at Riverside Meadows in 2001, to safeguard the site from the threat of development.
