The improvement works to the Jubilee Car Park at the entrance to Horsham Park are now almost complete.

The new redesigned car park, next to the Horsham Superbowl, not only provides a more attractive entrance to Horsham Park in Horsham for visitors but it also provides more car parking spaces close to the town centre.

The work, which started in June, was funded from developer contributions.

The exciting new design incorporates a dedicated pedestrian link between Horsham Park and Horsham town centre.

The Light Tree sculptured, by Brighton artist Steve Geliot, which had been temporarily placed in the car park in Hurst Road near Pavilions in the Park, has now been moved to its permanent position as a focal point of the new entrance in front of the Horsham Superbowl.

Helena Croft, Horsham District Council’s cabinet member for communication, special projects and Horsham town, said: “I am delighted to be part of the opening of the Jubilee Car Park, where we planted a Birch tree in honour.

“A big well done to all those who were involved in this great project and I hope residents and visitors will come and enjoy this new improved part of the town.”

A video of Mrs Croft (Con, Roffey North) speaking at the opening ceremony of the car park, along with some footage of the Light Tree’s journey to its new home, can be seen by visiting Horsham District Council’s YouTube page (www.youtube.com/horshamdc)
