Darndale 210418


This parkrun is easily accessible by bus as there are several routes that run along the nearby Malahide road. There is some on-street parking available next to the park but not a lot. Toilets and a changing room are available next to the start line.


The run consists of three laps around the outside of the park, though I believe there are plans in place to change this to a shorter five lap course, due to regular flooding in one part of the park. The route is entirely paved and mostly flat except for one short pinch of a hill. There are also no sharp turns so this could be a good place for a PB attempt. The park mainly consists of open green fields with a nice pond in the middle.


Parkrunnners enjoy coffee in a nearby clubhouse. This is a great opportunity to meet with everyone and discuss all things running.

X Factor

One of the more interesting features of this park is that there are horses grazing in the middle of it. This certainly makes this a unique place, and it was made even more special today when there was a foal born in the park. Spring is in the air!
