Local football ground, that still has the communities support. It's small, but the advantage of that is that you are close to the action. Food beer and soft drinks are all on sale at reasonable prices. Welling V Dartford 2-2

Went here with my son, nephew and brother in law. Good atmosphere. Facilities need updating, which I believe should happen soon. Was overcharged at the wings bar and wasn’t even replied to when sending an email to make a complaint.

History (from Wikipedia)

It is not truly known when football was first played at Park View Road, but a significant grandstand was built by the late 1930s. It suffered substantial damage during The Blitz of World War II and lay derelict for some years after. This was until a campaign was initiated to reform Bexleyheath & Welling F.C. Crowds soon soared to over 2,000.

In 1950 the current main stand was built. Crowds continued to rise in the 1960s and so the main stand was enlarged, and covered terracing was increased. By the 1970s however, the club (which was then known as 
Bexley United) had fallen on tough times and were forced to fold. The last game was in April 1976.

In 1977, Welling United (who had been playing in nearby Eltham) secured a 15-year lease of the ground. It had been left to rot and a fire had damaged the main stand.

Erith & Belvedere F.C. moved into the ground in 1999 after the main stand at their old stadium – also known as Park View – burnt down. The club sold their old site in 2001 and financed the development of the far side of the ground, where their headquarters are now maintained. Seats replaced a rather dilapidated terrace.
