I do admit a few dog owners are pretty scummy and spoil the reputation of the run of the mill owners. Having said that the park is really lovely.

I haven't been to Southchurch Park for a few years. Lovely open space with a great boating lake to walk around. Good Parking and a good little cafe.

Great place to chill out, enjoy the lake with the ducks and swans. A visit to the cafe a must and my Grandson loves the children's play area. All in a lovely Park with something for everyone.

The grounds are clean & well maintained with lots of areas to sit & relax. There were swans & ducks on the lake & play areas for... More
