Good place to walk the dog off the lead with made up well kept paths, poo facilities, planted areas and children's play areas. Very well kept with lots of access points from the Leas and onto the beach.

Beautiful coastal park and gardens right along the seafront. Great imaginative play areas for kiddies. Beach with pebbles and sand area. Have been coming here for years, since it opened. Great all year round

Came from London and had a wonderful guided visit to the park which was most impressive. Very large area with great diversity suitable for all ages in any weather. So much thought has gone into its sustainability and upkeep.

So it's down at the end of a very small road, doesn't seem like its the right place but you will find it. You have to pay for parking and it's not cheap parking at all you pay per hour. There are lots of play...More

We are regular visitors to the park. We enjoy walking along the paths and my children like the fact that you can choose two or three different paths to get to the same place. The playground areas are brilliant and it seems very clean there....More

Well maintained and a super place to walk summer and winter. Play ground for the children well stocked as well as the beach. Safe and secure

This is a beautiful park adjoining the beach. It has lots of different play areas and activities for children, plus picnicking and barbeque areas. The only thing that spoils it are the parking meters.

Visited after a night out, lovely place to clear your head and take in the sea views, liked the zigzag path. Make sure you wear sensible shoes.

Lovely area and the council doing a lot to keep it clean and tidy. Loved the walks! Also there is a lot of interesting art around the Leas which was very well presented.

Hi, I have seen lot's of people using their own BBQ's here so I would assume that you are OK to do so. There are also some fixed BBQ's in the area, but obviously you can't rely on one of these being available. There are lots... More
