Welcome to the Kearsney Parks website

Welcome to Kearsney Abbey & Russell Gardens

There's something for all the family at Russell Gardens and Kearsney Abbey - visitors already enjoy great days out at Kearsney Parks but we're looking to make the experience even better. We're restoring these two historic parks to create a unique heritage, community and event venue.

THANK YOU! To everyone who contributed to our Heritage Lottery Fund bid for the Kearsney Parks. We've secured a £3m investment for our restoration and improvement plans.

Consultation: Alkham Road Crossing

Kent County Council is proposing the installation of a puffin crossing on Alkham Road between Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens.  A consultation on the proposals has been launched today (30 May) and will be open for comments until 24 June 2019.

Funding for the proposed pedestrian crossing has been secured from government funding via Kent County Council’s Local Transport Plan.  The scheme is proposed to be implemented in the current financial year.

Cafe extension

As part of our National Lottery funded project at Kearsney Abbey we're building a 180 sq. m. extension to the cafe. This will provide an enlarged café with modern kitchen facilities, along with new customer toilets.  The extension and toilets will be fully accessible, including a Changing Places facility.  A new outside space will provide additional seating.

Please excuse our apperance whilst this exciting project is underway.
