Promenade Park

WINTER IN PROMENADE PARK

Although the Splash Park may be closed until next season and the desire for ice cream replaced by the want of a warming drink, Promenade Park is still a very enjoyable place to spend some time in the colder months.

On a sunny winter's day, when the low light casts shadows across the grassy banks banks of the River Blackwater, take a walk along the promenade to the statue of Brythnoth. Take in the view and breathe in the air.

The children's playgrounds and sand pits are open all year and the adventure golf is still open on weekends subject to weather conditions - click here for details.

If you fancy a nice warming drink you will normally find at least one of the kiosks open in the park or walk a short distance to the Hythe Quay where you will find a couple of pubs which also serve food. The nearby High Street also boasts a good selection of places to eat and drink.

Avenues of mature trees and recreation areas lead down to the ornamental lake complete with fountains and resident swans and other birds and wildlife. Smaller children will love the sand pit which is located at one end of the lake. The pit is ajacent to one of the many refreshment kiosks in the park so you can relax with a cup of tea and watch the kids enjoying themselves. There is also an oyster and seafood bar which is open weekends and bank holidays.

At the opposite end of the lake you will find more refreshment kiosks and the main conveniences. Beyond those is:

THE VALLEY

Beside the Splash Park is the Galleon, a large activity feature in the shape of a an old sailing ship where children can climb and slide to their hearts content. Next to the galleon is a play fort and a zip wire for that extra bit of excitement - and all for free!

Also in the Valley are the beach huts which are available to hire for the day. They make an ideal base for a day in the park. Click here for more details.
