Kent County Council
Cyclopark is Kent’s new activity place. The scheme provides a public visitor and activity park centre for the new Cyclopark, near Gravesend in Kent. The aim of the Cyclopark project is to bring first class cycling, running and extreme sports facilities to north Kent and is one of the leading multi-sports centres in the south of England. The public visitor centre building includes a café with a full working kitchen, public display spaces, changing facilities and workshops for the cyclists.
The site of Cyclopark is on the old re-routed A2 road near Gravesend. The redundant A2 route was developed into a safe pedestrian, cycle and equestrian route, which also passes Cyclopark, linking it to National Cycle Route 1.
Construction of Cyclopark began in January 2011 and took approximately 10 months, with the site opened officially in early 2012. Funding was provided by Kent County Council, Sport England, the Colyer-Fergusson Trust, British Cycling and the Homes and Communities Agency.
Betteridge & Milsom acted as Cost Consultants and CDM Co-ordinators on this prestigious project, and we were delighted when in 2014, it was on the shortlist for the 2014 Kent Design Awards.
