One of the most popular country parks in Kent, Shorne Woods Country Park offers everything you need to spend a day enjoying the great outdoors.
The site includes the eco-friendly visitor centre and café, a sensory garden, orienteering, fishing lakes, a trim trail and picnic and play areas – not to mention to 292 acres of rolling woodlands, wetlands and meadows that can be explored via a variety of waymarked trails.
A lot of effort has gone into making the park as accessible as possible – electric 'Tramper' mobility vehicles are available for hire, while there's a special horse riding and cycle path route around the site.
There are a number of other colour-coded waymarked trails too, ranging in length from the 1 mile Easy Route to the 6.2 mile Darnley Trail (PDF, 2.6 MB) that also takes in the nearby Jeskyns and Cobham Wood sites.
Hosting educational programmes throughout the year, Shorne Woods offers lots of opportunities to learn about the nature and wildlife at the park. It is one of the few places in South East England to provide Forest Schools.
With a unique space and meeting room for hire, Shorne Woods Country Park is also an excellent venue for everything from business meetings and workshops, to birthdays and club meetings.
For information about how the park is managed, read the Shorne Woods Country Park Management Plan 2009 - 2014.
