We regularly visit here and enjoy a bacon baguette before walking our dog around the wood. There is an arboretum with some unusual trees. The park has a few buildings/traces of its past as Maidstone Zoo.

We dropped in this park today to break up our trip home from holiday. We were so impressed. Clean and well kept with a cafe and plenty of toilets. Children enjoyed the play equipment and a walk through the woods. Would recommend to everyone.
