Mote Park covers 450 acres of mature parkland including a large 30 acre lake.

Although busy at peak times the park is large enough to allow you to escape the crowds and find more tranquil areas.

As you would expect, a large number of birds are recorded in each season. During adverse weather conditions rarer species such as jack snipe and goosander have been seen.

A walk in the park seldom goes unrewarded with a kingfisher, often adding a splash of colour to a grey day. Warbler song will accompany you on a spring walk and not many years ago a wood warbler, very scarce in Kent in recent years, was singing near the car park. As the year progresses, winter thrushes and finches are much in evidence and if fortunate you may see one of the resident little owls enjoying a little winter sunshine.

Organised bat walks and other study days are available, details of which can be found on the Mote Park Fellowship website.

Car parking, cafe and toilets are all situated in the park.
