Family friendly review the Strand Gillingham, Kent a wonderful leisure park in the South of England.
The Strand Leisure Park
The Strand, Gillingham is open all year around but really comes into its own in the summer when the outdoor pool opens for the sunny season. It’s home to a huge lazy river, toddler pool and many family friendly slides. Plus a 25 metre lane pool for serious swimmers. Currently you need to book swim times online to keep everyone safe. All under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Swim prices are a very reasonable £6 for adults and £4 for kids. Make sure you check online for opening times as these change throughout the year.
You are welcome to bring your own food but there is also a cafe open during the school holidays should you want to buy something there. You can purchase inflatables when you’re there or bring your own.
What else is there to do at the Strand Gillingham?
As well at the fabulous swimming pool you’ll find tennis, crazy golf and FootGolf, to playgrounds, inflatables and the famous miniature railway, there’s something for everyone at The Strand and most of these are open year round. Should you want something a little more sedate then the river walks are a lovely way to enjoy the great outdoors. Or for little thrill seekers, I highly recommend heading to the dedicated parkour arena.
You’ll also find a play area and outdoor gym at the Strand Gillingham making it perfect for an active day out.
The Strand is home to the Medway Junior park run a 2k running/walking event for four to fourteen year olds. A fabulous way to encourage little ones to be more active. It’s held every Sunday at 9.30am.
