Mote Park is a huge green space in the heart of Maidstone covering over 450 acres. It has been voted one of the top 3 parks in the UK in the People’s Choice for their favourite Green Flag Park.

An award-winning park

In 2020, Mote Park was voted one of the top 3 parks in the UK in the “People’s Choice” for their Favourite Green Flag Park. It includes natural features such as grassland, woodland, rivers and a 30 acre lake over 450 acres.

Mote Park was originally the main water source for a Roman villa. Then, in later years, Mote Park House became a country estate and the owners planted and developed the park around their home. The original mansion house was demolished in 1793 and rebuilt by 1800. At this time, the River Len was also dammed to form the lake and internal roads were added, along with walls, and a boathouse.

Things to do

The large children’s play area was re-built in 2019 and has plenty of exciting activities to suit all ages. It is situated near the main car park. There is also another small play area near the School Lane entrance. For those looking for a thrill seeking experience, Mote Park Outdoor Adventure complete with high ropes, climbing wall, mini golf and Segways adds the adrenaline rush.

The park is perfect for walking and cycling with lots of paths and trails to follow. For the more adventurous, there is a BMX track. The jumps and spins add an extra dimension and the track offers a great challenge for those bringing their bikes on holiday.

The new café opened in June 2023, offering a selection if hot and cold drinks, food and ice-cream.
