South Park café is a seasonal café, catering for all ages. It is set within the 91 acres of this beautiful
Victorian Park,overlooking the bowling green, makes it an ideal location to come and enjoy a delicious hot or cold beverage, breakfast, lunch or light snack. You can also sit and listen to bands playing in free outdoor concerts, enjoy the fabulous flowerbeds, visit the birds in the aviary or play your favourite sport in the multi-use games area.

How to Find Us

  • Road - South Park is on Grange Road. Due to limited car parking around South Park we recommend you use the Town Centre car parks and access the park by foot through Victoria Embankment.
  • Train - It's easy to get to South Park from Darlington railway station; walk from the station, down Parkgate towards the town centre and follow the signs.
  • Bus - South Park is accessible by bus - for more information please visit Traveline North East [external link]
  • Cycling - There are cycle paths linking from the Town Centre through Polam Lane on to South Park.  Cyclists can access most areas of the park, however we ask cyclists not to cycle in the play area or the main bowling green.
