35. Country Parks

There are many Country Parks to explore within the Kent Downs AONB offering outdoor activities, trails, visitor centres and plenty of open space to enjoy and discover.

Brockhill Country Park's lake, woods, meadows, picnic and play areas – along with the excellent vegetarian Brockhill Café – make it a great spot for a family day out.

Lullingstone Country Park is internationally important for its collection of ancient trees, with over 300 veteran oak, beech, ash, hornbeam and sweet chestnut, some of which are thought to be 800 years old. The park also has areas of chalk grassland that fill with spectacular displays of orchids and other wild flowers in spring and summer.

Shorne Woods Country Park is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and has nearly 300 acres of woodland to explore and enjoy.

Trosley Country Park covers 170 acres of the North Downs, land which was once part of the “Trosley Towers Estate”. Part of the park has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, mainly due to the chalk grassland slopes which lie below the North Downs Way.

White Horse Wood Country Park offers beautiful countryside, local history and breath-taking panoramic views and is perfect for walking the dog.
