Literally blink on the road and you’ll miss the car park and drive past. Very small car park but managed a space no problem. I have a feeling that’s because locals know this park and knew that due to the rain yesterday, it would be a mud fest!! We did the Acorn trail and it took us 1hr. Many parts for long periods were slushy thick mud. Fun but slowed us down. It was a pleasant walk but we probably wouldn’t come again. We like parks and forests with a bit more interest/views etc.

Car boot broken into whilst walking . Window smashed and handbag stolen. Very quick job. Culprits probably in woods watching. After speaking to some locals this is a regular occurrence. So beware park in old perry st itself not in carpark

Very pleasant stroll, mostly through woods. There are numbered way markers (1-20) as you go round and this gives the kids a good sense of achievement and let's them know how far they have left to go. Particularly recommended in spring and autumn.

Scadbury Park over the werkends is home to Runners, nature lovers, ramblers and families. It is so vast and unspoilt that each time my wife and I go forva walk in it, we see new areas and things we hadn’t sern before. It hascan old hunting lodge once used by royalty in the times if Henry VIII (now a ruin but clearly visible and by a large pond), we’ve seen an old Austin A2 from the 30s deep in the wood thats still intact, upside down but still has it’s witeveheels and tryes on it! And we’ve sern RAF underground bunkers used for training and if german troops landed in the park..and these tunnels are very much intact to go inside them! Chesnuts csn be picked and conkers too..along with beautiful flora and hedges that shed their leaves and blossom at varying times throughout the year. Ample parking and wrll organised wooden planked footpaths. You can picnic in there and take your dog for a good run too :) You need a few hours to roam in this park. A true inspoilt area that is always a delight to spend an afternoon in, or go for a long cross-country run first thing in the morning once the sun comes up!

We did the 4k loop as a family when visiting for the first time last weekend (you can do shorter walks too). It was excellent. I can't believe we have lived in Sundridge Park for over 10 years and have never done this before. Half the walk was in woods and half in open fields. Easy for the kids too (ages 7 and 5). Just go and check it out to blow the cobwebs away, you won't regret it. Parking too!

Scadbury used to be a favorite dog walking area, but for some reason dogs are not allowed off lead anymore?! Signs warning you of fines if your well behaved dog is off lead is a shame. I also got badgered by council officials once, telling me my dogs had to be on a lead, when they were already on their leads!!!!!??? I found that incredibly irritating. Gates are sometimes locked when they should be open. Not a welcoming park and pretty pointless for pooches. Go to high elms instead.

Sorry for your bad experience at Scadbury Park. As you reviewed Scadbury a while back, I'm pleased to inform you that we are trying to be a 'hit' with dog walkers, and by viewing more recent reviews you should be able to see that reviews have improved drastically. Thanks for your feedback, and perhaps you could visit again sometime. Best, Digital Manager

Love walking around here, have been here at least 20 times in the last 3 years. My children love coming here and looking at the horses and running around getting plenty of fresh air. Looking at the wildlife and just sitting listening to the birds singing. It's free and has a lovely little picnic area.

One warm, sunny Sunday afternoon recently I was at a loose end so I walked over to Scadbury Park to investigate. I hadn't lived in Chislehurst for very long and had been told that it contained the ruins of the Walsingham home surrounded by a moat.
It was a lovely walk through the park with alternate areas of woodland and open spaces some of which would be perfect for a picnic. Paths well defined if not very clearly signposted.The ruins themselves were a little underwhelming but worth finding. I made my way out via the Bulls Head pub for a welcome and thirst-quenching drink after a lovely Sunday walk.

It was a pleasant walk in the woods. It’s a loop and you will not get lost! 😬I would say give about 2hours. There is also a picnic area with tables and bench where you can have your packed lunch or snacks. A good place to bring your dogs for walk too! Remember to wear a good pair of shoe/wellies as it gets muddy with the January weather! 😉

A new discovery and not too far by public transport. A lovely peaceful place to visit. I have told other people about it.
