Located on the sloping bank of the river Blackwater,
Maldon's Promenade Park has been a favourite summer playground
for over a hundred years.
Avenues of mature trees and recreation areas lead down to the ornamental lake complete with fountains and resident swans and other wildlife. Smaller children will love the sand pit which is located at the end of the lake. The pit is ajacent to one of the many refreshment kiosks in the park so you can relax with a cup of tea and watch the kids enjoying themselves. There is also an oyster and seafood bar which is open weekends and bank holidays.
At the far end of the lake you will find more refreshment kiosks and beyond those is Promenade Park's famous splash park. Located in the Valley, this water playground for children is open on certain dates between May and September, the charge for 2014 is £2 per session. Click here for details of opening times and dates as well as other important information about the use of the splash park.
Beyond the splash park is the Galleon, a large activity feature in the shape of a ship where children can climb and slide to their hearts content. Next to the galleon, there is an aerial runway for that extra bit of excitement.
You now reach the model boating and crabbing lake where you will often see a miniature Thames barge being controlled by it's proud owner. You can find more information about crabbing here.
These hand operated pedalos for children between 4 and 10 years are located at one end of the model boating lake weekends, school and bank holidays until September (subject to weather conditions).
£3 for a ten minute ride including use of life jacket.
Walk along the bath wall to the statue of Earl Brithnoth and take in the view of the Blackwater including the site of the Battle of Maldon in 996.
At the opposite end of the park you will find a traditional childrens playgound with swings and slides, together with a wildlife area.
