Kingsway to the Sea features a new park stretching from Hove Lagoon to the King Alfred Leisure Centre.
A new route will be created through the park. This route will create new pathways and ramps to enhance accessibility for all.
The park will have activity and relaxation spaces, with opportunities for both sport and leisure, including new gardens as oasis areas. The park was designed with a target to deliver a 20% Biodiversity Net Gain compared to the existing site.
Improving sports and leisure facilities
A new outdoor sports hub next to the bowling greens will include new public toilets, changing rooms and a café. It will be the new home for Hove & Kingsway Bowls Club. There will also be a clubhouse which will make it easier for players and spectators to get to the bowling greens.
We’ll refurbish the public toilets at the Big Beach Café, and the green space will be improved to create a family area.
We’ll keep the existing areas for tennis, bowls and croquet and add areas for padel tennis. There will also be wheeled sports areas including a skateboard plaza, a pump track for biking, and a rollerblading and skating area.
How we’re increasing accessibility
We’ll make significant accessibility improvements for people with mobility issues. We’ll add inclined ramps and new stairs throughout the park, offering a choice of routes for everyone.
The new public toilets in the Outdoor Sports Hub will include accessible toilets and a Changing Places facility. Additional accessible toilet facilities are proposed at Hove Lagoon and the Tennis Pavilion.
