“I love this Park!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

I first went to Dunorlan Park in the 1970's. I have visited here with young children, older children, friends and family. It has grown so much since those days. Although the Lake was there, and the Boating and the ducks, it was smaller and wilder, a different shape. Not all of it had opened up. Now that more of it has been "cultivated", and new houses built near it's entrance ( which has taken away some of the Park as you go in) it has become a very smart Park indeed! It is a super place to take children to run around in and picnic. There are still wild edges to it, if you go down and to the right end of the Lake, past the children's area, and leading to side exits. There are the quiet, restful areas up high to the left and there is the wonderful, flat and circular tour of the lake. Past the Fishing spot and to the other Car Park opposite which is easier for the less mobile as that Car Park slope is not as steep.

There are outside Lavatories and an excellent, basic Park Café. It is a wonderful place to walk the dog in too. Pooh bags are provided, though these sometimes run out so do take your own. Dogs should be on a lead unless particularly well behaved, particularly around the Lake, and in case they pooh where they should not, or disturb other dogs/people. It is a great place for dogs to greet each other as they pass by, particularly for the smaller breeds. Also a good place to run, early or late, and sometimes outdoor Tai chi or similar can be seen. And the Park is free to all. One can spend 30 mins seated and just taking it all in, or anytime from an hour walking round to several hours, it's your choice. A wonderful facility. And so near to the Shops in Tunbridge Wells.

“Wonderful park - amazing trees”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Wish I lived nearer to this park as its really lovely. There is a central lake with boats and you can walk right round the lake. The gardens are really well maintained and there are so many different types of trees. Didn't get too spend that much time here but lovely place to go and sit and have a picnic. The only things that let it down are the cafe (I would rather take my own food and drink, although lovely view from the balcony), and the parking is awful. Took us over 20 minutes to actually park, was worth it in the end as wouldn't have wanted to miss the park.

“Quiet and lovely Park”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Great to take the family or to walk dogs as plenty of space away from the lake as not to upset the wildlife on the lake

“Pretty busy , nice gentle walk around the lake though”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Nice place to go if you want a walk that take 30-45 mins . Good central location as well . Hill from Car Park down to the boating lake could be a challenge for those with poor mobility .
