Lower Leas Coastal Park

The Lower Leas Coastal Park is home to the largest free adventure play area in the South East.

It also boasts an amphitheatre which hosts theatre and musical performances during the warmer months, and is right next to the beach.

The park is split into three zones, with the formal zone comprising pine avenues, gardens and flowers blooming all year. The fun zone has several different play areas, while the wild zone is a haven for quiet recreation, where sensitive habitat management allows wildlife to thrive.

Wildlife such as migrating birds and insects thrive in the area and the park contains an under cliff area with a unique microclimate attracting wildlife rarely found in the UK.

Events take place throughout the summer including concerts, children's workshops and drama.

The Coastal Park has won the Green Flag Award (given to quality green spaces) every year since 2007 when it first applied for the award.
