The park also includes the Bishopstones Nature Reserve where you can look out for wildlife including Sand martins, skylarks,meadow pipitsandcorn buntings.
The route below is designed for walkers as it takes you along footpaths around the park but there is a cycle route running right through the park.
The park is located just a few miles from Herne Bay so you could visit the park by following the coast path on our Herne Bay to Reculver Walk or head to the delightful coastal town of Whitstable on our Whitstable to Herne Bay Walk.
