Great for walking or jogging. Big open spaces and wooded areas. Pick blackberries or collect conkers in late summer/autumn. Small player area for children with rocks to scramble over and a balance beam.

Darenth Country Park is a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of a very busy area. Many interesting places to explore. On a nice day you can't beat it for a lovely relaxing stroll.

The park is about 250 acres in size and was part of a large asylum/psychiatric hospital. Here are a lot of easy walking tracks/trails here, look for the notice boards that are dotted around, they have maps of the site. There are no marked trails...More
