Mote Park
Mote Park has been a popular place to visit for both visitors and locals being a huge green open space in the heart of town. Its vast number of mature trees create a landscape of tranquil beauty, cool shade in the summer and glorious colour in the autumn. The winter and spring are very popular with bird watchers as it hosts some over wintering birds and a host of chicks arrive in the spring.

Maidstone Leisure Centre backs on to the park and looks after the football and rugby pitches, in the wide open areas but whilst the park is used for sports the vast majority of people come along for the glorious walk around the thirty acre lake or simply to have a picnic and enjoy the play facilities with their children.

Getting out on the water and messing about in boats is a much enjoyed British past-time and Mote Park Water Sports Centre is the perfect opportunity to explore the water and to enjoy this place from a different perspective. Here you can take out a rowing boat, try sailing or windsurfing or get the family into a pedelo swan and explore the islands, reeds and trees. Whilst there is a small cost the prices are family friendly.

For those looking for a bit of excitement and some new challenges is the Red Bull sponsored BMX track. This is great fun and free and with practice those taking part get faster and faster at getting round and the jumps and spins bring a whole new element to the park. This is a great discovery for those bringing their bikes on holiday.

The 18 hole Pitch & Putt Golf Course is open during the weekends of the summer. Here you can hire the clubs and get out onto the greens. It is fun for all the family with many laughs for the beginners and a few challenges for the more experienced.

A variety of events happen throughout the park during the year, these can be large music and ticketed events or ones run by the volunteers, wildlife data capture, outdoor theatre or simple family fun events. Check out our What’s On pages to find out more about dates and times.

A little café is open all year and offers everything from jacket potatoes and sandwich lunches to tea and ice creams. There is both indoor and outdoor seating.

Mote Park has a long history and was originally the main water source for a Roman Villa, the in later years Mote Park House became a country estate and the owners planted and developed park around their home. The park was then bequeathed to the people of Maidstone and it is looked after by Maidstone Borough Council and an amazing team of volunteers.
