“A breath of fresh air”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We visited on the first warm and sunny day of the year. The blossom was coming out on trees, the daffs and violets were out and the river walkway was busy with strollers - a sheer delight.

“Getting really nice”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

The Friends of the Westgate Parks are really transforming a nice place to visit into a very beautiful and pleasant place to visit. A calendar of events has been published outlining numerous activities for all the family throughout the year. Great place with a lot of history.

“An oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city!”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

Westgate Gardens really are stunning in the summer. But also a lovely break away from the busy city life of Canterbury. Take a stroll by the river and relax, well worth walking through on your lunch break :)

“Beautiful but busy!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Westgate gardens runs along the river where they do punting for anyone that fancies a boat ride, and there are lots of benches and a gigantic tree somewhere in there. However it gets very busy in the Summer with lots of school groups visiting the city. Which is great if you plan to sit and natter with friends, but not as nice if you want to relax, read a book and catch some sun.

“Tranquil and interesting”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Walk down one side of the river, and behind the old building, stop and admire the huge fat trunk of the Oriental plane tree. Walk back up the other side and have a look at the memorial.
