Parkland / Woodland Garden
Mote Park was voted runner up in England’s favourite park and is popular with locals and visitors. Maidstone as a community are very proud of this park and what it has to offer and it is supported by a large team of volunteers who work hard to keep it nice but will also be delighted to tell you about it if you find any of them working there.
Mote Park covers 450 acres, with a 30 acre lake, mature trees and a variety of different recreational activities. Not only is it a great place to walk around or just sit and watch the swans and wildlife. This is a designated wildlife site.
There are lots of ways to enjoy the park apart from walking, the peace and the wildlife. If you have children with you then the playgrounds are excellent fun and amuse them for hours. The football and rugby pitches are great for those who bring lots of friends with them or meet lots of new people whilst they are on holiday. Pitches can be booked at Maidstone Leisure Centre.
The BMX track, sponsored by Red Bull, is a great fun facility if you have brought your own bikes with you. There is no doubt that this is hours of fun as you improve your speed and jumping techniques as you start to master the track.
During the spring, summer and autumn Mote Park Watersports Centre offers very good value and brilliant fun things to do. Rowing boats and pedalo swans are great for families and friends but trying out some of the other things as an individual is also brilliant. Learning to sail is fun, as is exploring under the branches and round the islands in a canoe. Windsurfers are also available, so there is lots of fun to be had here.
The Pitch and Putt (18 holes) of golf is open, mainly at weekends and can provide lots of laughs for beginners and a bit of a challenge for those with a bit more experience.
Mote Park has a friendly and very useful café, serving good coffee, sandwiches, cakes, jacket potatoes and of course ice cream.
There is miniature railway on Sunday afternoons during the summer.
Check out the events listing for Mote Park, as there are many events which take place here, be it music, wildlife, outdoor theatre or something else.
