Horrified
Sep 2020 • Couples
Nice idea but wrong area to have it in. Took a walk down to it as everyone said Grays has a beach. It actually horrified me. All I kept thinking was I would never let my kids in there. God knows what animals have been in that sand. Having no actual water to was away any waste products left by animals as it isn’t really a beach so no sea going in and out. Nice try but no no no. Give two instead of one for effort.

It's not a beach!
Aug 2019
This is a really nice park, but to call this a 'beach' or an 'urban beach' is ridiculous when there's no water in sight. It's really just a nice park with a big sandpit. The cafe also serves well-priced food but be warned they're understaffed, so there's often some lengthy waits.

Birthday party
Jul 2019 • Family
Had birthday party in the park for our granddaughter,we were allowed to erect gazebo and tables etc .The staff at the cafeteria located close to beach were really accomodating and helpful.It is a pleasant place to take children and families as there are quite a few slides swings and other activities on site.There were quite a few groups enjoying a very pleasant day.with no rowdy people or aggravation.

Big sandy beach with several climbing frames suitable for different ages plus a regular playground and park area. Volunteer run cafe good basic food and very reasonable, £10 for two jacket potatoes and two cappuccinos (good coffee too). Toilet and baby change facilities in the cafe. There is a big pay and display car park nearby.

Worth a couple of hours

Good variety of equipment caters for young children to older children.
Sadly the location means pollution.

Day out
Aug 2018 • Family
Brilliant place to spend the day with young children and it’s free. All run by volunteers who do an excellent job. The cafe prices are very reasonable. Lots of things for the children to do. My only criticism is that there is no water facilities on a hot day. It’s a beach with no water. But overall a good day out.
