“Nice but bumpy for wheelchairs”
Review of Southchurch Park

Southchurch Park
Attraction details
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I went on a beautiful day with a lady in a wheelchair. Parking was fine inside the park but the paths leading to and around the pond were terrible! She had to hold tight most of the way round as it was a real bone shaker. We enjoyed sitting by the pond watching the swans although it was a bit dirty in there with rubbish collecting in a few areas. The little cafe in the park is old fashioned inside but staff were very nice. We only had an ice cream so can't comment on the food. Overall it was a nice experience only spoilt but the path, not a problem if you don't have a wheelchair or buggy.

Agree with other reviews that the park is very good, as is the cafe but the toilets let the park down. The male toilet had no paper, broken door handles and no locks. very dirty. Ladies toilet dirty and with broken handles. The toilets don't seem to be attended to during the day and are used frequently. Not a pleasant experience.

We go to this café all the time, most of the time it's for breakfast, but have had diner there and sandwiches or tea and cake. The food is all lovely good old fashioned cooking. Good value for money. It's always busy there, so make sure you get a table before you order your food.

A functional park, sports bias but also for the family. A good cafe and row boats for hire in the summer. Sunday luch time sees the model boat enthusists out in numbers with every type of water craft imaginable on display. Near the seafront and pubs.
