  • 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 »

  • Maidstone Mela is a fantastic event, this park is nice but it's not really designed for a large musical event. The ground is a tad uneven and toilets a lng way away, but as a little park it's nice not...  more »

  • Really nice park in the north end of Maidstone town centre. It's best to access the park by walking. The closest place to park would be by the Gallager Stadium where parking charges may apply. It's a spacious park with two adventure play areas (one play area for toddlers and another one for older kids), small woodland walk, Skate park with ramps and a treetop trail, so definitely family friendly. There is loads of green space for running around, having a picnic etc. One problem is that the toilets are over one end of the park so there's a bit of a walk to one end if you want to use these facilities. Other than that, a great place to visit and enjoy.
  • First time I had ever been here and what a lovely place. Only down side is that there is no parking on site so a bit of a pain to get to but can always park in Maidstone itself and walk across. That's why we have legs!
  • Very nice place for walks and picnics and to take kids to. Can walk along the river and there is play areas. Very well maintained. Only downside is there is no cafe or place to buy any food or drinks
  • This is a great park to have a stroll around in or take your children to, so that they can enjoy the cycling paths, Tree Top boardwalk, the adventure play area(s) and skate/BMX ramps and half pipes. There are lots of open spaces which are ideal for a picnic or just relaxing. The only downsides are that parking is not very good as you have to park near the Gallagher Football Stadium and walk a bit, although it is along the river so it's not too bad. Also, the toilets are quite a distance from the play areas, but they've put up some port-a-loos halfway between the two locations. I'm not sure if they are permanent additions or not. However, it's a lovely park with a lot of different stuff to hopefully keep everyone happy.
  • Brilliant park they is accessible from Maidstone Town Centre. It's hidden away so you don't realise you are in the Town! Plenty for the children to do including a Toddler Play area and a much larger play area, tree top walk, pond for pond dipping, skate park and just a beautiful walk around the park
