Details

The 100 year old Edwardian Promenade park encompasses an ornamental lake, a large water Splash Park, beach huts for hire, sandpits, a galleon play ship and aerial zip-wire and several picnic areas. The park hosts numerous events and affords magnificent river views over the Blackwater which means that it is an extremely popular park with over 300,000 visitors a year.

The park was opened in 1895 to provide the people of Maldon with a valuable amenity. 'The Prom' as it is known locally, is a great place to walk or sit and watch the activity on the river and always makes for a great family day out.

Current facilities include:-

An ornamental lake with fountains, wildlife, seating and an adjoining sand play area.
An amphitheatre and open air stage suitable for hosting theatrical productions and concerts.
A splash park open from late spring through to the autumn dependant on weather conditions.
