  • Lower Leas Coastal Park is in Folkestone, in Kent, England. The park is split into three broad recreational zones, starting at The Leas Lift (on Lower Sandgate Road) and heading west. The formal zone comprises pine avenues and flower gardens, planted for all-year-round interest. The fun zone comprises the large free adventure play area and the amphitheatre. The last area, the wild zone, has been created for a diverse wildlife habitat, with careful management.
  • Lovely walk along the coastal path with pretty beach huts. Best done on a sunny day without too much wind. Nice views busy in play area which is very popular. Some parking available.
  • Lovely little park, well maintained. The parking is easy. On a summers day it’s s beautiful place to visit. Wander through the park and explore at your leisure. After spending time at the park there are plenty of little independent shops to explore. Then pop into a cafe for something to eat and drink. Even on a wet and windy winters day this is a great place to visit it you are wrapped up warm. Go visit and enjoy.
  • Amazing space for kids of all ages, a multi area play park with huge wooden fort, climbing spider web, pirate ship, several sand pit areas. Also benefits from a cafe and barbecue areas. You could easily spend hours here. Beautiful views of the sea, always well kept and tidy. Worth travelling from out of town for.
  • Childrens play area was amazing. Kids enjoyed playng there. You can have bbq almost at the seafront. 4 stars only because i do not think there are enaugh wc for such a big place.
