  • with lots of ammenities from play areas to BBQ settings and private (ish) nooks and crannies. Can be quite an hike if you stray but a fantastic place seeming off the beaten track

  • 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.
  • Good outdoor playground for kids. The scenic coastline and green trees are enjoyable for adults.
  • Excellent area. Beautiful scenery, nice walk and kids loved the park area
  • 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.
  • A great place for the kids to play. Fun, engaging and the perfect place for afternoon adventures.
