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.
