Whether it's dog walking, watching bowls or cricket, exercising or just wandering around the park, it's a real pleasure. The gardens are well kept and the whole park is neat and tidy. There's a fenced off secure play area for the little ones and plenty...More

Full of useful information, novels, local attraction information and study material. The library has printing services in colour and black and white and many computers you can use to access the internet or personal documents.

The museum has a mix of permanent and temporary exhibits which cover the history of Dartford and also houses remains of Kerrs an old Dartford Store. If I tell you too much it will spoil you visit.

Visited this place many times as a child and was always amazed at all the different artefacts from Dartford's long history. Great Place, and the library next door is reportedly haunted.
