Shorne Play Area

Shorne Play Area is situated on Shorne Common at the top of Mill Hill Lane in Shorne.  It can be reached on foot from the village centre via Butchers Hill.  There is a small parking area adjacent to the common.

The play area was upgraded in July 2021, and now consists of two swings (one for children and a cradle swing for toddlers), a toddler’s ‘Hide & Slide’ tower slide, a see-saw, a carousel, and a ‘Trolls Shelter’ childrens tower slide, set in a pleasant green surrounded by mature trees.  There are bench seats available, and beautiful woodland walks nearby.

The play area is open to all residents during daylight hours.


As well as Shorne Parish Council, the new play equipment and safety surfacing was funded by grants from Kent County Council, Gravesham Borough Council, Veolia Trust, and generous donations from local residents.
