Too many signs
Nov 2020 • Couples
Nice place to visit for a walk. However there are too many signs telling people what they can’t do. In the short walk we did, 25 mins I counted 21 laminated signs. (I didn’t count the wooden named signs). Not one of my favourite places for a walk because of all the signs. Thought we would give it a go today as I was hoping some of the signs would be missing. Not very welcoming

Lovely place
Aug 2020 • Couples
Enjoyed walking around here with our French Bulldog puppy! He enjoyed it too! Spent about 2 hours here and saw it all. Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the view or have a picnic. Dog bins are dotted around. Nice lake to watch/feed the ducks

We love walking our dog around the lake here. It's peaceful, has a great selection of trees, birds and wildlife and a beautiful lake.

Tranquil Place Close To Town
Dec 2019
I had forgotten all about this spot so close to town, next door to my old school of Vinters Boys, now known as Valley Park. There are various entrances all around the park, if driving, a good place to park is in Lodge Road, just off the New Cut Road. Other entrances are via Vinters Park Estate, along by the school and New Cut Road itself. The park stretches up to The Bearsted Road, around the border with the crematorium, down to The School and up most of New Cut Road. It is a great place to go for a walk, dogs are also welcome, and there is a lovely lake in the centre, with a few benches scattered around.

Lovely bit of nature
Jun 2019
This is a lovely nature reserve nestled between housing estates and the busy ashford road/school area. There is plenty to see here ranging from old buildings from when a large house stood in the grounds to a diverse wildlife landscape. It is well used by the the locals but is never busy and is a nice quiet and scenic area just outside Maidstone.

A pleasant oasis in a built-up Maidstone housing estate
Apr 2019 • Friends
Vinters Valley nature reserve is a lovely, well-kept, tranquil bit of countryside which is beset on all sides; busy road on one side with houses beyond, busy crematorium on another, housing estate on a third side and school to the fourth. I assume the valley itself wasn't suitable for housing, or by now it would be. But all credit to it, and those who look after it. Much needed and I wish we had more

Lovely place to walk
Mar 2019 • Friends
This is a very peaceful wooded area to walk. The birds are delightful and the nature reserve is kept in tip top condition. The lake has many birds and ducks, geese and a swan. It is delightful.

A Hidden Gem
Jan 2019 • Family
I walk here every day it is the most fascinating place. There is a wealth of history behind this Nature Reserve, dating back to 1342. Unfortunately the big house burnt down in 1956 but you can still see where it stood and imagine Victorian guest walking in the grounds. It is so well looked after by Steve Songhurst and his band of volunteers a big thanks to them.We are so lucky to have this beautiful area to walk in.
