“What a nice Park ,with great little cafe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I visited Southchurch Park with a group doing a charity walk around the lakes there , as it is close to the sea front , I expected parking problems , but the Park has it's own car park , is nicely laid out , and much larger than I had expected ! It also has a tiny cafe , but with nice outside seating too . This I found served excellent lunches and snacks at very cheap prices , and has an amazing variety considering the premises are so small . But everything was spotless , a nice selection of cakes also on offer , I would definitely recommend a visit , in fact went back two weeks later with a friend for a nice lunch in the gardens there.

“Dog heaven.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

This park is always so full of poo it's unreal. The council go to great lengths to make it a lovely space for families but every visit is spoilt by either dogs off their leads chasing and intimidating children or at least one person stepping in dog poo. Even the streets surrounding the park are always caked in dogs mess. Disgraceful.

“Cream Tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We often visit the park when in Southend. The grounds are really well kept and it is a joy to see the family of swans and check on their progress. The cafe always supplys a good cup of tea at a decent price. This time we also enjoyed a cream tea and the scones were lovely. Another Southend gem and worth a visit.
