The marshes are named after Holy Trinity Church in Milton Regis. .HistoryThe site of the country park has been used since early times and archaeological evidence has been dated to show that, Saxon and Roman Britain settlements were present in the vicinity.

  • We love the Country Park - we walk there most days with our two bull terriers. The park is great for dogs and we have really appreciated all the hard work that is being undertaken by the park ranger to enhance the area.
  • It brilliant place to go with children or pet and to have a family, the big park is very spacious and allows you to have your own little walks. People go there to cycle through the pathways however sometimes in the attention people do set fire to ground In the summer you have lovely blackberries my mum used to make lovely pies and smoothies with the The wildlife there is enchanting with birds all different types, butterflies,fish and badgers/foxes .
  • Great to have the open space to be able to run the dogs
  • Little bit of Heaven in Swale, excellent for dog walkers
  • Arrived today 1 pm and it was closed, disappointing and the entrance didnt look too inviting
