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.

Good for families and dog walkers. There is an interesting history behind how the Park evolved and its connection to Maidstone town.
