Skerne Park

Skerne Park is a predominantly council owned housing estate in the southern part of the borough of Darlington and the ceremonial county of County Durham, England. It is situated on the southern edge of Darlington. Skerne Park comprises streets named after well-known British rivers, such as Tweed Place, Hammond Drive, Severn Way, Tyne Crescent. This is because "Skerne Park" is built near the River Skerne. Skerne Park has been recently renewed, and is a minute's walk away from The South Park. In Skerne Park, there is a Londis Newsagent Store, a Post Office and Chatterbox Cafe, there is also a popular primary school serving the local area.
