Broomhill Park is a much-valued open space referred to as ‘Strood’s hidden gem’. This is reflected in the level of interest within the local community and the large numbers of people actively involved in the park and its development. The park is located on one of the highest points in north-west Kent, combining recreational opportunities with panoramic views of much of the Medway Towns and the rivers Medway and Thames.
Broomhill Park provides a green oasis for users and wildlife. Trees edge the majority of the park and a mosaic of trees and shrubs divide the park into character areas. The site is tiered, sloping to the northeast, with the lower level being used for play and the middle and upper areas being amenity use. The infant and junior play areas and sports wall are a major attraction for families. Other facilities within the park include free parking, a trim trail, a marked 1 kilometre trail, a human sundial and viewing points.
The Friends of Broomhill are actively involved in the promotion of the heritage of Broomhill Park, working to keep it a welcoming place for all. They have also recently raised funds to purchase a remnant orchard that sits on land adjoining the park to create a semi natural open space and educational resource. The group carry out a number of task days in the park and also run an annual Fun Day in the summer.
