About the walk

Please note: the grass surface becomes very muddy and difficult to negotiate in wet weather, particularly in the winter months.

Camer Park, near Meopham, offers easy walking through more than 40 acres of mature parkland and woods, listed as an Area of Outstanding Beauty.

The park is known for its wildlife. Recently, special programmes have been set up to encourage several species, including slow worms and common lizards, to breed.

Visitors may be fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the lizards basking in the sunshine. They are totally harmless.

The park is a popular place for families walking, playing and relaxing throughout the year and enjoying picnics in the summer and autumn.

The tree-lined parkland was once attached to an 18th century mansion, which is visible through the trees.

Camer Park was opened to the public in the early 1970s and is now a key starting point for walkers exploring the local countryside.

Tree enthusiasts can collect a tree trail leaflet from the kiosk offering further information about the specimens to be viewed along the route.
