The heart of Ebbsfleet’s new centre, the park will provide a large and prominent new open space for residents new and old, re-connecting Swanscombe to Ebbsfleet’s eastern neighbourhoods.
This dramatic landform commands breathtaking panoramic views across the Thames, stretching from the heart of the Kent countryside to central London.
With subtle remodelling of the existing topography the park has the potential to provide a range of play hubs, sports facilities (such as bmx/skate parks) and picnic spots to catch the sun setting over London’s skyline.
