About

COVID-19 update:

We are looking to open the Beach Huts and Splash Park in summer 2021. We are not looking to open up bookings until later in the summer season when we have confirmed staffing etc.

All opening announcements will be made in due course, please visit https://www.visitmaldondistrict.co.uk/prompark.

All bookings this year will be made via an online booking facility as well so you will be able to view all availability on there, these details will also be shared in due course.

 

The 100 year old Edwardian Promenade park features an ornamental lake, kids splash park, beach huts (available for hire), sandpits, a galleon play-ship area, zip-wire and several picnic areas. The park hosts events throughout the year and provides spectacular river views over the Blackwater Estuary.

The park was opened in 1895 to provide the people of Maldon with a large and well equipped public space. '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. With a long history and plenty of things to do while you're here, it is an extremely popular park with over 300,000 visitors a year.

Amphitheatre and open air stage suitable for theatre productions and concerts
Anglia in Bloom award winning public gardens
