Party at new park postponed

An event to celebrate the £2m restoration of The Level park in Brighton, scheduled for September 28 has been postponed. A new date will be agreed shortly with members of the Communities of The Level Forum.

All completed parts of the park remain open for use – including the new skatepark, the children’s play area, some of the lawns and other open spaces.

The event has been postponed because of delays to building works on the new café, which would have been heavily used for the event. This means the cafe, public toilets and the Rose Walk western entrance would not have been completed by the end of the month.

Among forthcoming events and key dates for The Level are:

Launch of the ''People's History of The Level' exhibition in the restored pavilions - the community rooms - this autumn.

The first ever HealthWalk from The Level on Thursday 3 October. Let the council know if you would like train as a Healthwalks leader, and also if you're interested in helping run themed walks at The Level (eg wildlife, art) - www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/healthwalks

The opening up of the all the north lawns, and the first showing of the new community artwork at its crossroads, by the start of October;

The arrival of the three community artist-designed chessboards, being set into the picnic tables near the pétanque area;

The opening of the new public toilets and 'Changing Places' facility;

The opening of the new Level Velo café, date to be announced;

Christmas tree lighting and carols at The Level towards the end of the year.
