Thameside Nature Park, Stanford-Le-Hope

Check out this park for incredible views over the Thames Estuary.⁣ Plenty of wildlife and passing boats can be spotted from the edge of the water and from the viewing platform above the visitor centre.⁣

The park is on a previous landfill site that has been returned to nature and maintained by Essex Wildlife Trust. The drive up the the main car park makes the site feel very remote!⁣

Essex Wildlife Trust's Thameside Nature Park is amazing for families, walkers and little explorers. The reserve has nature hides to sit and observe birds and nature from, walking trails and a visitor centre with a viewing deck. Small children will love the boat themed playground and there is also a wooden assault course for bigger kids.
