Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Explore a riverside landscape rich in wildlife and history.

Situated alongside the Great Stour River in the historic city of Canterbury, the Westgate Parks are four unique green spaces (Westgate Gardens, Toddler’s Cove, Tannery Field and Bingley Island) all linked by surfaced paths accessible to everyone. Together they form a delightful linear park which follows the river from the heart of Canterbury's busy city centre into the countryside. Enjoy the riverside walks from the medieval Westgate Towers located at the end of Canterbury city centre's bustling high street. Walks begin in the picturesque formal gardens and wind through picnic sites, a Roman themed children's play area to water meadows and a local nature reserve.

Canterbury City Council in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Kentish Stour Countryside Partnership are delivering a restoration programme (2013 – 18) at the cost of £1 million to revitalise the park, provide new infrastructure, interpretation and a programme of community activities.
