West Park was opened in 1885. Built on former grazing land, this 26-acre site also hosts the KCOM stadium, home to Hull City and Hull FC. This site has lots to offer the whole family, ranging from bowling greens to a state of the art skate park, children's playground and seasonal water play area.

West Park's terrain is flat. Most of the land is either open lawned areas of car parking, however, there is a small wooded area to the north that the longer courses visit.

Much of the routes expected to be taken by participants is along prepared pathways but in the small woodland, they are more rural in nature.
