Dane John Gardens, Canterbury Reviews
Once a focal point , I find it amazing that the rats have moved in and enjoy any dropped lunch from under the benches you seem so grateful for. Who pays for it, Also I would be more annoyed at the gang of weed dealers that constantly ask if you want to buy as the cycle through , hang on the police station is opposite Who pays for the lack of pest control and lack of authority Lastly I noticed the bandstand is a homeless shelter. Rats.,drug dealers+ homeless ideal place for lunch
Great place. There are toilets and parking opportunities. Perfect for an early morning jog or and afternoon walk. Enjoyable for families too.
My wife was here for 3 years and never visited. Roll on 20 years and we make it at last. Lovely park. Toilets. Sneak out from the centre of Canterbury for a break.
A serene, centrally located large Victorian style garden offering plenty of space to socialise and relax.
Such a good place to hang out with friends, but only really good when it's sunny. Always able to find somewhere quite private to sit away from people.
