Central Park is Dartford’s newest park and combines purpose built recreation facilities within a country park atmosphere. The creation of Central Park was closely linked to the building of Golden Jubilee Way and the development of Eastbourne in the mid-1990s.
The course starts and finishes on an open flat area of grass and from then onwards, the route remains on the path throughout. Apart from approximately 800m of the Dog Jog Dartford course which is on grass. Assistance may therefore be required for wheelchair users, especially in wet weather.
Well situated, the park is a 10 min walk from the city centre. There is also a small car park near the Cranford Road entrance at the southern end of the park (next to Fairfield Pool). Runners are encouraged to consider public transport or car sharing. For further information and travel / parking details for Central Park, please click here.
