Since its creation in 2004, Leybourne Lakes Country Park has become a popular venue with families, cyclists, walkers and water sports enthusiasts.

Our lakeside Refuel Cafe is open 364 days a year and provides delicious food and drink menus for humans and dog friends alike! Open from 9am to 4pm (October to March) and 9am to 6pm (April to September), visitors can enjoy glorious views of Ocean Lake and shelter from the elements, come rain or shine, with indoor and outdoor seating – all with disabled access. There are also toilets with baby changing facilities. We’ve also just added a New Dog Wash – a convenient way to get your pet clean after a walk in the park.

There are plenty of facilities on offer including a variety of walking routes and guided trails for visitors of all abilities and a children’s play area located close to the café. In addition, Leybourne Lakes Watersports Centre offers stand up paddle board sessions, SUP Yoga, open water swimming, kayaking, windsurfing and scuba diving all year long.

There’s an exciting Calendar of Events including pond dipping, wildlife activity days, bat walks and guided Nightingale walks, as well as a popular school activity programme. The Country Park is also home to regular events run by Malling Parkrun and Ocean Lake Triathlon Club.

Covering an area of 230 acres, the Country Park features a diverse tapestry of habitats, including multiple lakes, wildflower meadows, wetlands, hedgerows and scrub. This mix of habitats provides perfect wildlife watching opportunities year round.

Take a look at the Accessibility info.

The Larkfield Complex of four lakes attracts anglers from across the country who come to fish for some of Kent’s most sought-after fish. The complex is famous for hosting a vast range of fishing for a variety of anglers including carp, pike and tench.

Leybourne Lakes Country Park is managed by Tonbridge & Malling Leisure Trust on behalf of Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council.  The park received Local Wildlife Site designation in 2008 and has achieved the Green Flag Award for over 16 years, whilst maintaining Country Parks accreditation with Natural England.
