“A lovely place to stroll and relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

A beautiful garden with fountain it is well maintained and the view of the city and the surrounding Kent countryside from the top of the mound was spectacular.

“Worth the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

There was a lovely view from the top and the gardens are laid out nicely. Lots of grass areas with lots of space and fresh air!

“A lovely Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

A walk through this garden along the river bank as punts slowly glide by - you can't beat it. Particularly if it's a gorgeous warm Spring day as well, though of course it gets busy when the sun is out.

Well kept gardens and gret views over the city from the top of the mound.
Worth a visit particularly on a warm sunny day.

“Climb the mount !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

We used the Park as a shortcut to the town from our hotel. We climbed to the top of the mount and got some good photos from there of the city and surroundings. The park has a fountain and gardens and a small place you can buy a tea or sandwiches if you need.
