Beautiful park, well maintained and peaceful. Then right in the heart is a very well thought play area with lots of separate sections catering for all ages of children all surrounded by lovely golden sand. Will definitely go back it was great!

If you park near the Metropole Hotel there is a pleasant walk into the centre of Folkestone through this linear park.
