  • These gardens have been here a long time but were extended when Bromley Council took control of the area. This is a pleasant park but I think that it used to be maintained rather better than it is now...  more »

  • Has very nice flower beds. In Central Orpington. Most of the park is dog free so it's safe for families to enjoy.
  • Wonderfully landscaped gardens with a real bit of history around the Priory. There are some wonderful areas within the park including ponds and walled gardens. There is a really fantastic kids play area. The comments on here about bird excrement are sad as the only animals soiling the appearance of this place are local people with their complete inability to use rubbish bins. I really dislike the fact that this is blamed on the council, as keeping these gardens in good condition is a full time job without having to constantly fish takeaway containers and crisp wrappers out of the ponds. We live locally and this problem appears to be endemic of the area and perhaps the local people of which I am a relatively new one. We regularly find rubbish dropped in our front garden and driveway. Very sad aspect of this society we live in.
  • Good play area for younger kids but open green areas covered in goose poo
  • A very good Park for the kids, beware of the geese poo.
  • Omg priory Gardens is beautiful but its been abused by local neanderthugs I noticed the pond water is receding and the different species of beautiful birds are suffering I'm truly worried about the welfare of the birds the pond is contaminated something needs to be done asap
