  • From a stroke through the park with its lush vegitation, to letting the children play on the play area, the park is a lovely place to visit in both the summer or winter.  more »
  • Walk here regularly. Something for all ages. Swim in the sea in the summer. Walk through the park or along the seafront at other times. The play park is excellent for families with young children.  more »

  • Excellent day out for all the family of 12 relatives. Babies to great great aunts. Wonderful for children and a credit to Folkestone. Brilliant work done by Warden and staff. Friendly cafe. Playground and adventure area of a very high standard. We are regular visitors.
  • I hardly ever give a 5 star rating but this park deserves it. Fantastic place, vast and beautifully landscaped. Ideal for a family visit. Amazing play areas for kids of all ages. Picnic areas with timber seats and tables even proper barbecue stands. Direct access to the sea and great pebble beach. The only downside is the lack of a cafe close to the play areas the closest one is down towards the sea and it doesn't accept cards and closes for winter.
  • Came to Kent for a short holiday with my nieces last year in may and we left lower leas coastal park till the last day. We had the best day ever!! not only is it absolutely beautiful it also has tons of stuff for the kids to do. we stayed for hours and hours and when our lift arrived to pick us up we still weren't wanting to leave. Can't praise this place enough, Will be coming back this August with more of the Family.
  • Excellent park but local council is starting to do bodge up repairs if they carry on doing that it will become dangerous
  • Lovely park set in well looked after gardens right next to the sea
