Reviewed July 31, 2013

Great place to go and the facilities have been updated. Close to the river and great for walking the dog.

“This is a Lovely place to Visit, I've been here many times in the Last 40 years.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Its hard to describe, I've been coming and using this place since I was a Youngster, for the last 40 years, or more at least.
Its Grass -Tree's and The River Medway, and if your Lucky here's even some Sun.
The Grounds are next to The train line to Maidstone West/Paddockwood, and The Medieval bridge.
The Park is in the River Valley, and has had a few improvements added over the years, for the benefit of Visitors. Bring Your Picnic, and the Kids.
Parking is reasonable, but load the car up, with everything you need, for a day involving Open Space's Grass, and water, like a BBQ and Sun Shade/tent.
Ice Cream Van most Weekends, in the Car Park Area.

this is a beautiful picnic site which has a annual kite festival, however since the environment agency have been working down there for months it now resembles a building site. i would go when they have finished !!

“Good Picnic and Riverside walks”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Keep kids under control- why am I saying this- off course you all do! The rivers deep and dangerous. The views are typical kent weald- with hopfarms and plowed fields- Its a popular picnic spot and the boats will keep the kids amused/waving, as they head up the River Medawy. Theres a small charge for parking- but well worth the visit- had many a good afternoon there in that Locale- either on of by the river- our boat used to be moored up at Wateringbury.

“large nice park”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

great for long walks with the dogs, but children may get bored as there is nothing for them there like no play parks or swings etc. benches everywhere and people have picnics there too.nice in the summer, not so hilly so not ideal for the snow - just can look like the moon in the snow as it is all so flat
