Easthill Park has a large number of attractive features that include a beautiful walled garden full of mature shrubs and herbaceous borders. The War Memorial provides a focal point for the well-attended Remembrance Sunday Parade, and the new 'wild gym' will help you stay fit while enjoying the park!
At the south end of the park is the wildflower area, which provides a home to native species of plants and grasses that park users can enjoy.
Easthill Park is one of seven parks in the city recognised by the Green Flag award scheme.
Easthill Park also boasts the Park Cafe and Training Rooms, run by Fresh Start Community Association .
The Park Cafe and Training Rooms is in what was previously a derelict toilet block. Thanks to funding by Sussex Police and work by local volunteers, Fresh Start was able to renovate the venue and now uses it to host community events, training courses and a cafe.
The Park Cafe trains young people in basic work and catering skills whilst serving snacks, drinks, and meals several days a week. 7000 customers were served and 12 young people trained in the cafe's first year of operation from March 2015.
The cafe is currently closed for the winter, and will re-open March 2018.
Points of Interest
Wildflower and picnic areas
These natural fitness stations were hand-made by a local carpenter, using Sweet Chestnut cut sustainably from Stanmer Park woods by park rangers, as part of the council’s woodland management project. The metal bars were sourced from scrap, then sanded and painted.
The gym features a Hop/Balance Beam, a Sit-up Bench, Parallel Bars and Chin-up Bars. We hope you enjoy this exciting and bespoke feature.

Don't miss this.....
The War Memorial originally stood outside the Royal British Legion Hall in Trafalgar Road, Portslade. Due to an increase in usage of the highway it was moved to Easthill Park in 1954, where it was felt that a respectful service would be able to be carried out. The remembrance service attracts some 200 people every year and is one of the best-attended memorial services within the city.
