Visitors to Leybourne Lakes Country Park can now follow a newly launched self-led trail around the main lake, known as The Ocean.

The leaflet of the Leybourne Lakes Tree Trail, entitled Amazing Alders, maps an anti-clockwise route around The Ocean with detailed photos and information about a number of Alder species that can be found on the banks of the lake, including the Grey Alder, the Italian Alder and the Common Alder.

The circular walk is designed to help the public learn about these wonderful trees and contains some amazing insights into the natural history of the Alder tree.

The trail is one of seven tree trails produced in partnership by The Conservation Volunteers, Kent, and the Kent Tree and Pond Wardens and communities across Kent.

Cllr Maria Heslop, Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council’s cabinet member for Community Services, said: “There is such a wealth of knowledge to be had about the various species of the Alder tree at Leybourne Lakes Country Park, and the trail is just another way of adding interest for the many visitors of all ages who enjoy everything the park has to offer.”

Paper copies of the trail can be picked up from the leaflet stand at the country park and all seven tree trails can also be viewed on iPhone or android mobile phones via the TiCL app, and by visiting
