Reviewed 20 April 2013

If Penceseotr is the heart of the town then we need a transplant. Strip out the drunks/druggies plant some flowers built a band stand people might use then maybe. The river reflects our long suffering days once full of glory and now full of..............it's a good shortcut and not good for anything else

“Don't make a special journey!”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Don't come here expecting landscaped gardens or anything of real interest. This rather sad area of public garden has been sadly neglected over the years and is now really just the preserve of skateboarders and drunks. As a Dover resident I have to say it is a sad reflection on the town. Do yourself a favour - go for a walk along our lovely Seafront or visit the beautiful castle

“Pencester Gardens”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

What can I say about Pencester Gardens. Firstly it's not a garden it's a park, it has very little flowers in it. the local drunks and junkies reside here not to mention the refugees that have located themselves in the town. It's full of youths as there is a skateboard park in it. the main bus services run along the main street making it smelly with diesel fumes.
To be quite honest I would not call this a tourist attraction.
