Easthill Park has a large number of attractive features that include a beautiful walled garden full of mature shrubs and herbaceous borders. Use of the walled garden is prioritised daily for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities between 10am and 12pm.
The War Memorial provides a focal point for the well-attended annual Remembrance Sunday Parade, and a '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. There are plans for this area to be extended in winter 2021/2022.
Easthill Park is one of eight parks in the city recognised by the Green Flag award scheme.
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.
Fresh Start Portslade has created a History Trail. It lasts about 22 minutes. On the website it is available in audio formats. For those who wish to view a written version, we have a PDF of the trail available (623 KB).
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 (2015.)

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.

Opening Times -
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.
In 2018 the Memorial was designated a ‘Centenary Field’ as part of a national initiative, led by the Royal British Legion and Fields in Trust (www.fieldsintrust.org), marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. The project aimed to secure permanent public spaces to honour the memory of the millions who lost their lives in this conflict.
