This is a beautiful park adjoining the beach. It has lots of different play areas and activities for children, plus picnicking and barbeque areas. The only thing that spoils it are the parking meters.

Visited after a night out, lovely place to clear your head and take in the sea views, liked the zigzag path. Make sure you wear sensible shoes.

Lovely area and the council doing a lot to keep it clean and tidy. Loved the walks! Also there is a lot of interesting art around the Leas which was very well presented.

I love this place and visit every time we come to Folkestone. It's a lovely garden, thoughtfully designed and great for all ages.

Nice area to visit if you'rhe in Folkestone. Great place to take the kids, take a flask have a hot drink while they play. My only moan is some folk don't take all their litter away.

Always enjoy a walk along here. Both my children have learnt to ride bikes here. Many a car show and ice creams. You will enjoy it if you have never been.

This is well worth a walk and visit. Even in November it’s colourful, and interesting. We throughly enjoyed learning about its history and as we could walk our pooch here it was even better. Lots of hidden paths and ‘ secret’ bits Highly recommended

It is no longer possible to use the Leas Cliff Lift as it has been shut down earlier this year by the Health & Safety Authority as they say the brakes on the cars are not safe. This is a lift that has been operating...More

Hi, I have seen lot's of people using their own BBQ's here so I would assume that you are OK to do so. There are also some fixed BBQ's in the area, but obviously you can't rely on one of these being available. There are lots... More
