Lovely riverside Walk

The gardens are beautiful with a good path beside the river that you can walk further along through lovely countryside

Living in Canterbury and having a dog, I know all the parks around Canterbury, this one is by far my favourite one. You can read in the summer, walk your dog, just breathe a little. We even went there to do skyline and yoga!
