About this run route
Start / Finish
Outdoor gym/exercise area behind the tennis courts, close to the Crook Log entrance.
This is a 2km loop on a variety of surfaces including grass, woodland and tarmac. The route starts behind the tennis courts close to the Crook Log entrance to the park at the outdoor gym/exercise area and continues anti-clockwise around the park. Along the route are a variety of exercise stations with diagrams for the suggested exercise. Run England 3-2-1 route markers are included on the exercise equipment and at certain key points in the park, including a 1km marker close to the bridge across the lake.
The route crosses the road, which tranverses the park, twice and also the lake from the southern side. There are a small number of benches and much of the path is fairly narrow.
Danson Park is a large park designed and laid out by Nathaniel Richmond, assistant to Capability Brown in the 1700’s and includes; the historic Danson House with tea room, a boating lake, watersports centre, cafe, splash park and the Danson Stables public house/restaurant.
At certain times of year and in certain conditions parts of the route in the woodland may be very difficult to access for wheelchairs users or people with push chairs due to muddy or icy conditions.
The layout and usage of the marked 3-2-1 running routes is the responsibility of the local authority or further education establishment that purchases the route marking signs and usual health and safety and duty of care considerations should be followed in laying out open, even-surfaced, easy-to-follow, safe, accurate, well lit routes at all times - with the landowner’s permission. RunTogether will not provide materials with which to attach the markers.
