Parks and play areas

6. Camer Park

Camer Park 

Camer Park is in Meopham. It's a 45-acre designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with mature parkland suitable for a stroll or informal games and a small area of woodland.

The park has areas for picnics and a children's play area. There is car parking, toilets and a refreshment kiosk. 

There is a series of walks from Camer Park set up by the Meopham Footpaths Group. The site is available for dog walking. There are dog bins provided throughout the site.

In 2014 we worked with MKA Ecology, who deal with the relocation of reptiles from development sites, to introduce colonies of invertebrates to Camer Park.

You'll see areas of grass which are not cut very often in the park. This offers opportunities for the reptiles to bask in the sun on warmer days. The reptiles are not dangerous to humans, in fact, we are more likely to be a problem to them than they are to us, so while we encourage young explorers to go 'on safari', please be careful when in the park and under no circumstances remove a reptile if you see one.

The reptiles are common lizards (Lacerta vivipara) and slow worms (Anguis fragilis).The main car park is locked half hour before sunset every evening but pedestrian access and vehicle access to the recycling area is open 24 hours a day.
