Fantastic place for kids to let off some energy. Paid to park but no real expense as only £1.50 for the day. Toilets were clean and well looked after. Only downside was the non availability of any decent food in the cafe

This country park has had an upgrade of the paths, carpark, cafe and kiddies play area. Modest parking charge goes towards the upkeep. Great place to visit with the family for short stroll, play and snacks with some local history thrown in. Can be really crowed of course during hols and weekends.

Great to visit for a nice walk through the grounds. Some interesting history to explore along the way. Can get a little packed out in the warm weather. Cafe on site for a cuppa or a snack.

Whilst we had a wonderful breakfast at the cafe a walk through the rest of the park whatever the time of year always seems to be gorgeous and there is always something new to see. Families do seem to really enjoy all the play areas and it seems to cover so many age groups and everyone seems to be having... More

Often visit cobtree park with our dog. Lovely walk. Decided to get coffee and hot chocolate to take on our walk. It was very busy day and the Cafe was very pack with other visitor. Cafe only had 4 staff on which was ridiculus, it took 25 minutes to get these 2 drinks. Crazy. They need to have more staff... More

A well kept park with beautiful scenery. Great for all ages. Lovely walks with a variety of levels but nothing too onerous Pleanty of play areas for the kids/grandkids Very relaxing The only negative is the constant traffic hum from the very close M20/A20

This park is on the site of Maidstone zoo which closed years ago. The cafe has just been totally rebuilt and boasts to be open 364 days of the year. The food is basic but good and reasonably priced. Lots of picnic tables and a fantastic castle (Play area) for children up to 12. Great place for walking the dog... More

A beautiful park, with large children's play area and plenty of walking around the sculpture trail with signs of the old Zoo park if you look around, with a great collection of mature trees, with it's modernised cafe a great place to visit.

Thought we would take Grandchildren for a run around after all the hustle,bustle and food at Xmas. It's a great place to go,but would prefer the old cafe back. Hot chocolate should be HOT not warm, enough staff but had to wait a while to be served and tables not cleared off.
