These gardens are beautiful and a must see when you are in Canterbury.
The trees and flowers are lovely and there is a nice picnic area. The little river flows through it which is so clean you can see the fish in it.
A lovely oasis of calm!

In the glorious sunshine it was so nice to stroll through the gardens with my baby boy in his buggy. The gardens are so beautiful - clearly very looked after ( I even witnessed the gardeners in action!) and with the river clean and flowing, ducks and ducklings swimming along it was so nice! We had a picnic and watched the world go by.

The care that is taken in Westgate gardens to create beauty and colour, is amazing. The staff are very creative and do a wonderful job and all we need to do is look at it and enjoy it. It never ceases to make me smile. Everything is so well looked after and the ducks at this time of year are adoreable. Just take the time on a walk into or out of town to enjoy these lovely gardens, some of the trees are exceptional.

The River Stour runs through the park and against the backdrop of the last remaining gate tower and beautiful flowers, it is the perfect place to stop and chill or have a stroll.
