  • Lovely walk round the lake or you can go further into Tonbridge. The cafe in the park is great and sells lovely veggie burgers and homemade dog biscuits; thoroughly recommend the chilli sauce. Only problem is there's always a queue of locals!
  • Great place to go for a walk - toilets and a cafe with good coffee, burgers, ice- creams etc (outdoor seating only) fun play area and a basketball hoop and a goal which kept all of our kids (9-16) entertained! Fab free Easter egg trail in bank holiday Monday!
  • Lovely place to walk the dogs. Woods, river and lake. There's also a nice little cafe.
  • Great place to take a walk in the nice weather. Small cafe / food area. Ice creams.
  • Nice place to walk. Loos close by as is a coffee bar and picnic seating. Parking is £1 fir up to 4 hours and all funds go to the upkerp of the park area and reserve. Well worth a family visit even in the winter. Come feed the ducks but please NOT BREAD it's not really a good food for them and duckling have been known to starve to death because bread fills them up but gives no nourishment
