Conningbrook Lakes

Ashford's new Country Park

Conningbrook Lakes Country Park is a project to gradually transform the former quarry site next to the Julie Rose Stadium into a family-orientated country park around the existing lakes, offering a variety of leisure and water-based activities for residents and visitors to the area.

It's unique setting will also present an opportunity to boost the borough's leisure, recreation and countryside conservation offer by providing a gateway for walkers and cyclists to explore the Stour Valley, and to extend and enhance riverside wildlife habitats.

With a beautiful lakeside setting, views to the North Downs and access to a network of country trails Conningbrook Lakes Country Park will be a family-friendly facility for visitors to explore and enjoy, and is now officially open to visitors.
