Oare Gunpowder Works Country Park

Our younger Children really love exploring Country Parks, and living in Kent we are incredibly lucky to have a fair few to chose from. Locally, one of our choices is actually steeped in history which makes it a little bit more interesting.

The Country Park situated on what used to be Oare Gunpowder Works is a great place to explore. Having been there several times we have discovered that it was a very important site for the Gunpowder industry in the early 1900's. Lots of buildings/remains of buildings are still visible, its great to wander round and use the information boards to imagine what life was like back then!

Because its in woodland, our children love it. They can climb on fallen trees, balance on logs, and look for wildlife in the streams and lakes.

On our last visit we discovered a couple of rope swings which went down very well with the Children!


Do you have any Country Parks nearby that you would recommend?
