The gardens were absolutely stunning, with some of the borders laid out for spring flowering. The River running though the gardens was lovely. We saw ducklings and coots as we walked along. Punts are available for hire.

A great walk in the park along the river, especially in spring, when the tulips are in full bloom. Loved it!

A lovely park with with nicely kept gardens etc. A pleasant break from the hustle and bustle of Canterbury, but spoiled by small groups of people drinking alcohol and been generally intimidating. This park, as well as the rest of Canterbury, would benefit from a ban on drinking alcohol in public similar to many other cities.

This was a very nice and easy walk to do and I must say that I enjoyed this walk immensely. With the flora and trees developing it made a fascinating walk in the Spring sunshine. On the day I went it was even quiet which was nice after the hustle and bustle of Canterbury town centre and Cathedral.

The area of Canterbury is absolutely breathtaking. The Westgate Gardens area is phenomenal. Most beautiful place to walk through on a sunny day. The lakes are great and spotting wildlife is a joy

I've visited here many times and it is always clean and tidy. It's such a pretty place love it here for quiet time or family time. There's enough bins so there is no rubbish. The river is lovely

So picturesque. The beautiful red tulips and vibrant colours lifts your mood along with the sunshine. We sat along the river bank and had a wonderful picnic. We will be back again in the summer to go on a boat ride and walk along the canal discovering the tranquil setting in the heart of Canterbury town.

So many people have written excellent reviews of this garden that I haven't much to add.(I recommend that you skim through these for a fuller picture). Suffice it to say that I agree with all the complimentary reviews as I thought the park was absolutely beautiful. The flower beds are spectacular and the trees are breathtaking, even though the leaves... More
