Horsham Park entrance improvement works to start
20 Jun 2012
WORK to improve the entrance to Horsham Park is due to start this month.
The new redesigned car park will not only provide a more attractive entrance to Horsham Park in Horsham for visitors but there will also be more car parking spaces close to the town centre.
The work is set to last for around 14 weeks and is funded from developer contributions.
The exciting new design incorporates a dedicated pedestrian link between Horsham Park and Horsham town centre.
The Tree of Light, which has been temporarily placed in the car park in Hurst Road near Pavilions in the Park, will be moved to its permanent position as a focal point of this new entrance.
Pedestrian access between Horsham Park and the town centre will be maintained at all time during the construction work while a reduced number of car parking spaces will also be available during this period.
Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Heritage & Leisure, Councillor Jonathan Chowen, said:
“This is a very exciting opportunity to redesign and deliver the Jubilee car park in the Diamond Jubilee year at no cost to the Council.
“The car park will complement the fantastic human nature garden and will be part of the Council’s ongoing programme of maintaining its high standards for Horsham Park.
“The entrance provides an important gateway between the town and the park.”
