My 3 year old loves it there. Loads for kids to do plus its free parking too. Cafe is ok if a bit limited on choice and pricey.....overall though is really good.

We have now visited the site a few times and would highly recommend.

It has great play facilities for the children and space for them to run about.

We've always had good food at the on site cafe.

Well worth a visit.

Found this place recently via a friend and we visited one very hot day for a picnic/playdate with other toddlers,babies and mums. A lovely family friendly park in beautiful parkland surroundings. Plenty of well maintained safe play equipment,with one main fenced off area but other pieces dotted around park. Lots of shadey areas to picnic out of sun and very happy to report responsible dog owners with well behaved dogs on and off leash. The aboretum walk is well worth a look and easily done with buggies,even when 7months pregnant,lots of different beautiful varieties of trees and plants. Also a bit of history with the old elephant house( this used to be Maidstone zoo). The toilets were clean and well maintained even on a busy day and cafe serves a good choice of reasonable priced food although there was quite a queue. We ll definitely be becoming regulars.

I went here for the first time on Monday, we normally go to Mote Park but this park is so much nicer. We have a child and a dog and its brilliant for both. I understand the park has recently had a refurb and the play areas are excellent my only complaint would be why was there no money spent on the toilets, they are a disgrace and the cafe is awful. such a busy and beautiful park deserves a decent sit down cafe, not a scruffy cabin with a hatch, queues went on forever and limited food. My advice would be bring a picnic, there's free parking but not much so get there early. We loved the walks so peaceful and the grounds are kept lovely. Will be coming here in the future instead of Mote Park.
