  • We caught the Kentish lady boat from the Malta inn to Maidstone town & found the park during the boat ride. We went back & walked around the park which was quite big & grassy. Lots of couples enjoying...  more »
  • This is a great little park, with well kept play areas which seem quite new. It all looks quite good, but there's a lot of rubbish tucked in the bushes and off the tree top walk. The toilets are disgu...  more »

  • Great park for the kids. The addition of the new skate park is cool. Love the boardwalk through the trees. My son loves fishing for tadpoles at the pond in spring (always put back in the pond afterwards when we leave). And we really enjoy the concerts at the amphitheatre. We regularly walk or cycle to this park via the lovely Millennium route. The only let down is the public toilets - filthy and dangerous as they're often used by 'undesirables' doing drugs (and other things!) in there.
  • This is a beautiful park with something for children of all ages from babies to the skating teens. There are 3 separate areas to go into, tree top walks, lots of beautiful well looked after greenery and flowers around. There are lots of benches to sit down and enjoy the park and areas to sit and have a picnic or relax on the grass too. There is a bandstand there and they use that, obviously more in the summer months, but it adds to the fun of the summery park experience for sure. There are also little sentimental pieces around the park that you can find like the row of tiles with children's handprints/ footprints in them, or a metal ring ornamental design piece with a short poem written on each spiral piece that you can read as you walk through it. If you havent been here yet this is definitely the place to try when the sun is shining, you'll be making plans to go back again as soon as you're leaving I'm sure. Enjoy!
  • The park is is absolutely lovely, next to the river and well kept. Disgusting though how every single parking spot is hugged by businesses. Not even a chance to park and display; just get out in 30 minutes. So they basically have the complete park at ransom.. Didn't think something like this would even be legal.
  • A little way out of town but well worth the walk. Quiet, peacefully and right next to the river. Look out for the concealed concrete bunkers.
  • Perfect place for fun in the sun can't fault the lovely ground at all
