Yes we went back and it was better ( I have spoken to Maidstone BC in the meantime and they said they were getting more dog wardens etc.

A fantastic fort is being built due to open at easter which had our children drooling and we have promised to go back again when it is open.

This is a lovely park with a fantastic cafe and the dog poo situation appears to be improving.

Large park, easy to get lost in if you're not careful, some wonderful trees (if thats your thing) and the best little food hut in the area.

It's a great place for a walk with the kids or dogs (or both) and there is some history around if you know where to look, including the elephant house from when the park was a zoo.

The perfect place to take the grandchildren and the dogs. A big clean and well looked after park with toilets and a refreshment bar.

i have lived on and off in this area all my life (62years!!) and we only discovered Cobtree Manor Park last weekend! An amazing massive park, the tress were beautiful in all of their different shades. Must say our daughter said it is not buggy friendly as ther are no gravel paths around the park.

What a beautiful and historic park. A huge area with lovely woodland walks and open spaces with really great (and new) climbing frames, zip wires etc. Loads of parking, dog welcome, toilets, wonderful cafe doing great breakfasts etc - it ticks all the boxes for us BUT....

...I don't think I have ever been anywhere with so much dog poo!

We are responsible dog owners and also walk in woods etc where poo is not picked up but within 10 mins of being at Cobtree Park 3 of us had trodden in poo and the youngest in the party had managed to fall over in some. Really horrible.

There are a few signs encouraging people to scoop the poop but not enough and not enough bins. The play equipment is fab but should be fenced off at least.

We had a fun time but the poo issue makes it not somewhere I would rush back to. Such a shame.
