  • Decided to come here today with the kids to kill some time rather than be stuck in doors. Plenty of space to run around and lots of sand. Weather on this occasion wasn’t fantastic but we stuck it out ...  more »

  • Was really nice fairly large park set in sand. Most children had there shoes and socks off and we're either playing on the equipment or digging in the sand. There is no frills, reasonable priced cafe that sells anything from ice creams to meals. Toilets are available. There's also a large grassy area and seems to be many "perches" for adults to sit (we sat on a wall). Just the other side of the park is the river Thames, where you can watch the busy river traffic and see the docks.
  • Lovely family park, children happily playing in the sand pit. The cafe is very good with extremely low prices and volunteers doing a fantastic job. Will definitely visit again
  • Great place if you have kids. Massive sand pit with kids toys. And a cafeteria open on site. Walk by the river a bit short though.
  • Excellent cafe. Friendly people, home made food, very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend it. They lots going on on different days. Go on their website to see what's going on when.. Light boat cafe.
  • It a beach, near the river but secured so that you children cannot run out. It is what it is, a beach in Grays! Good play area for kids. Café on site.
