City Parks

City parks are large areas of open space, that are landmarks in their own right, and are capable of accommodating larger scaled sports and leisure facilities ( such as sports pitches and running tracks) and the city’s larger cultural events.  

  • The Ebbsfleet Implementation Framework identifies seven city parks, each one exemplifying a different local landscape; marsh, gorge, industrial estuarine river, calcareous river, mount, quarry and lake.  
  • Only half of the city parks are included in a current planning permission, and are therefore likely to be delivered through a range of approaches. 

  

City Park Delivery  

  • The city parks should be planned and delivered as a network. 
  • Each city park is expected to be delivered as a bespoke project.  
  • The opportunities and constraints of the location and landscape/topography should be used to test potential facilities.  
  • City Parks should include both ‘neighbourhood level facilities’, and ‘city-wide’ facilities.
