Kent is a county that is full of surprises. Offering plenty of heritage, countryside and waterside views, there is little wonder why so many people choose to move to park communities in the area. One of the latest developments in the wider Kent region is the spectacular Island Park, close to a variety of amenities and sites of interest to appeal to residents of all ages.
The park commands incredible views over both the River Medway and the Marina, where the community gets its name from. Its fantastic location is perfect for those who are drawn to the water. However, if you prefer to stay on dry land, there is plenty to explore in the wider region.
Island Park promises to be a luxury residential resort with lots to offer in the months and years to come. As one of the newest parks in the region, it is closely inspired by some of the longest-standing communities in the county. However, the park offers unique, tranquil living for residents of all ages.

About Island Park
Close to water and countryside alike, Island Park makes the most of its wonderful surroundings. It is a community exclusively open to residents aged 50 and over, making it a perfect location for retirees who want to move into a community of like-minded people. Certainly, the focus here is on slow, easy living, which means residents can feel free to leave the hurry and rush of city life and work behind them.
The park is developed much like an exclusive neighbourhood of sorts, with a close-knit community yet enough privacy of your own to return to. It is a nice balance which is hard to find outside of residential park living.
The park itself offers stunning developments and carefully maintained gardens and grounds. Residents can return to their properties after a long day of exploring without needing to worry about the look of the local area. The park owners are careful to maintain the look and feel of the site for all their residents. They are keen to understand what appeals to their residents, and are always happy to take on feedback and suggestions.
Residents will also benefit from an exclusive mooring at the nearby marina. This means anyone with a boat or jetty of their own can moor up and sail across Kent's waterways to their heart's content. It is a great way to explore the wider area, and it is likely many residents will take advantage of this. Island Park is perfect for those who want to take up sailing in their retirement, or for those who haven't had time to do it while working. Now that they are free to do more of what they love, they can get out and explore to the fullest.
With Island Park being a retirement community, residents can leave behind any woes of noisy neighbours or local crime. It is a safe, gated neighbourhood which is ready to welcome retirees from all corners of the country. It's a great way to get closer to the curiosities of Kent.
Island Park is based at the edge of the marina of the same name, and is based in a very quiet corner of Kent. It is intentionally developed to offer tranquil, peaceful living, while still being close enough to local sites of interest, towns and cities alike. Residents who wish to get out and about can take to nearby roads and motorway links, which will also be useful when inviting family to visit. The park is never too closed-off from civilisation.
The park itself is just a few miles from motorways in the shape of the M2, the M20 and the M25. A short drive will get you to many nearby attractions, however, residents will never have to worry about noise from traffic or nearby communities. It is one of the main reasons why the park is gathering so much interest from local retirees.
Within walking distance of the park, there are many pretty woodland areas ripe for exploring. This is great news for nature or countryside lovers, or for those who simply like taking the odd walk. There really isn't much need to stay inside when there is gorgeous scenery to enjoy for miles around. Residents can head off for long walks or short strolls, ideal for the odd picnic trip and for taking photos of the wonderful woodland. The local area is rife with brilliant opportunities for all the family, meaning residents at the park can take visitors on an adventure or two with ease.
The area is also rich in heritage and culture, as Kent is already famous for. Many quaint villages are within walking distance of the park, meaning that residents and visitors can take a look at historic market towns and traditional village customs while getting to know the wider area. There are many traditional pubs, ale houses and restaurants to enjoy, while history lovers will also enjoy various heritage trails set up across the local area. For many people, living out here will provide a great chance to get to know some of Kent's hidden gems, trails and haunts.
The Local Area
Beyond the park and its fantastic location, it is worth considering other sites of interest beyond the main gates. While there are plenty of relaxing activities ready for residents to enjoy close by, the local area provides lots of active interests for active people. The nearby village of Hoo St Werburgh is only a short distance away, providing lots of amenities and services. There are lots of shops and a handful of supermarkets close by, which means residents can find all their daily essentials close to their park properties.
There are also two doctors' surgeries in the local area, which will be hugely convenient for many residents. It is convenient that medical help and support is only a short drive away should residents or visitors need it. The local village and wider area provide everything most people need and desire when it comes to mod cons and facilities.
For those who want to keep fit and stay active, Hoo St Werburgh also caters to more active lifestyles. There is a leisure centre with a swimming pool and squash courts, as well as a public golf course and bowls centre for more relaxed pursuits. This could be a great chance to take up a new hobby or to learn a whole new skill.
The park is also close to towns in Chatham and Gravesend, meaning that residents can also venture further afield to access more town amenities if they wish. Otherwise, they can simply sit back and relax in the company of calming waters and wonderful woodland walks. Living at Island Park promises to be an escape to Kent unlike any other.
