The park is situated right alongside the Blackwater River and has a splash park which is sure to thrill the kids. Adults can savour a quiet walk along tree-lined avenues or the stillness of the ornamental lake.

-Cultural events: A number of visitors who head to holiday apartments in Maldon in spring are enthusiasts of the annual Maldon mud race which originally took place around New Year’s day. This charitable event organised by Lions & Rotary clubs takes participants over a 400m course across the River Blackwater.

Garden on riverside. Really peaceful and relaxing and the added bonus of watching the wildlife from the windows in the apartment was really lovely. Ron and Sue the owners could not have been more welcoming and we would definitely stay there again in the future.
