What's on Offer
Horsham Park is a haven of green space with a lake, trees, wildlife and colourful flowerbeds. Within the Park is Park House Garden, a tranquil landscaped sensory garden designed with the disabled and visually impaired in mind. For those wishing to be more active, there are tennis courts, a "Trim Trail " round the perimeter (1.9km / 1.2miles), a permanent Orienteering Course, a very popular bowls green and a skate park.
In 2011 a permanent table tennis table and volleyball court was added to the Park as well as a delightful Human Nature Garden, which offers an attractive educational garden illustrating the link between plants and people in their everyday lives. The Garden was created by Horsham in Bloom and funded by the Big Lottery.
A wide range of refreshments are provided at The Conservatory Café; an ideal spot to stop for a break and to listen to concerts on the nearby podium.
