Don't waste you time - It is a small green area in central Dover, kids playground, sometimes putting but not worth going out of you way!

Coming from London, Pencester Gardens is relatively small in comparison. However, you can clearly see Dover Castle from the park, there is a bandstand which hosts a few annual events, a childrens well equipped play area and a skate park.

Nice river running down one side with added Art Deco mattress and beer cans thrown in for good luck. Yes! I'm serious.
Most of this stuff is from homeless drinkers and drug takers. Although a lot of general rubbish from kids and family's.
I've seen way worse parks so I gave it an average score. And it is a nice river.
A park and you can't even let your dog off its lead ! Yes I'm serious about that too.
More aggressive humans than dogs.

Only a small park in the middle if Dover Town. You can enter from the main bus and coach area, walk through and come out the other end of town. There are 2 play areas on one side, children's playground and a larger kids skate/bike area. The river runs along the other end with a small bandstand and benches

Pencester Gardens could be a lovely place to visit, a good location, nice size and good amenities. Band stand, Skate Park, Children's Play Area and open grassy spaces. However when you take a walk through the park you don't get the feeling that you'd like to stay long. I certainly wouldn't want to take children there. I know the drinkers and druggies need somewhere to go, it's just a shame they have chosen what could be a lovely family space.
