Queens Park Conservation Management Plan
The Friends of Queens Park, working in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council, is inviting people to help decide on the first project from the draft Queens Park Conservation Management Plan, funded from developer’s contributions to the park.
The two projects are:
- Increase marginal planting in the pond and install a dipping platform to create a new observation point over the water and improve the experience of interacting with the wildlife
- Enhance the feel and function of the ‘Quiet Garden’ by opening up new paths, vistas, cascade and clock tower
The project with the most positive responses will be the scheme to be developed.
- Draft of the proposed Queens Park Conservation Management Plan (PDF 1.7MB)
- Display boards summarising the Conservation Plan (PDF 2.7MB)
Please go to the consultation portal to tell us which is your preferred option. We will accept responses until 6 August 2018.

Don't miss this.....
At the centre of the park is a large wildlife pond, which is a great attraction for visitors, with waterfowl such as Geese and Moorhens to feed with grain and seeds.
Please note: don’t feed the birds with bread - it's not good for them and it encourages the local herring gulls to scavenge.
There are also water cascades going down into the pond from the peace garden area.
