The children's play area and the toilets are now open. The cafe is providing a takeaway service for drinks and snacks. Please check this page for future updates. 


The Government guidelines state that there are a limited number of things you can now do within park and this includes:

  • Spending time outdoors - for example sitting and enjoying the fresh air, picnicking, or sunbathing
  • Meeting 5 other people from a different household outdoors - following social distancing guidelines
  • Exercising outdoors as often as you wish - following social distancing guidelines

At all times, you should continue to observe social distancing guidelines when you are outside your home, including ensuring you are 2 metres away from anyone outside your household. As with before, you cannot:

  • Gather in a group of more than 6 people (excluding members of your own household)

Cobtree Park is a wonderful outdoor resource which everybody has the right to enjoy. To ensure this, we ask that you please be respectful of the park environment and other people during your visit by:

  • Throwing away - or taking home - your litter
  • Picking up your dog mess
  • Adhering to social distancing guidelines 
  • Not having BBQ's


Cobtree Manor Park has over 50 acres of parkland displaying a diverse and maturing collection of trees and shrubs.

Standing on the site of the old Maidstone Zoo, the park features a themed play area, along with a sculpture trail, plenty of space for picnics, and a cafe serving delicious hot and cold food and drinks. 

There is also a pay and play 18 hole public golf course nearby.

A visit to Cobtree makes an excellent base and access point to the North Downs Way.

Horse-riding by permit only.
