“A lovely little park on the beautiful river”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

A great little park for a picnic and nice for the kids to have a kick about, keep an eye on them because of the river though. This is a great place to go and eat a takeaway pizza from Dominoes near the Maidstone hospital which my wife and I often do. I do begrudge paying for parking though as the councils make enough out of people's rates and theres really no need for it.

“Great family spot”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

There is a great kite festival held every year. Great for BBQs, nice walk for pets, close to Medway River.
Overall a great place to go to if you want a picnic with a large family, tables available to sit on but would advise taking your own. Only have to pay £1.70 for parking on weekends and Bank Holidays but £1.20 for Monday to Friday.It's worth it for an all day picnic.

Adventure playground for youngsters too.

“This is a Lovely place to Visit, I've been here many times in the Last 40 years.”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Its hard to describe, I've been coming and using this place since I was a Youngster, for the last 40 years, or more at least.
Its Grass -Tree's and The River Medway, and if your Lucky here's even some Sun.
The Grounds are next to The train line to Maidstone West/Paddockwood, and The Medieval bridge.
The Park is in the River Valley, and has had a few improvements added over the years, for the benefit of Visitors. Bring Your Picnic, and the Kids.
Parking is reasonable, but load the car up, with everything you need, for a day involving Open Space's Grass, and water, like a BBQ and Sun Shade/tent.
Ice Cream Van most Weekends, in the Car Park Area.
