We’ve secured funding to continue improving parks in Brighton & Hove.
The funding will go towards more exciting playground refurbishments in Queens Park and we’re also looking to introduce outdoor gyms at Victoria Recreation Ground and Preston Park.
When property developers build in Brighton & Hove, we ask them to contribute funds to the city for local projects and schemes. These projects will be fully funded by developer’s contributions.
We’re opening three new consultations to hear from residents how we might continue to create an enriching and dynamic play space at Queens Park and what kind of outdoor gym equipment residents might benefit from.
Your opinions will shape the future of our parks.
Continuing work on Queens Park playground
We’ve installed two bespoke multi-play structures and 10 new pieces of innovative play equipment for all ages and abilities to enjoy, learn and play together as part of the Queens Park playground refurbishment so far.
The next phase will see us making improvements to the toddler area and introducing play equipment to the sand pit.
We’re keen to hear from residents on how we might improve play equipment to suit a wide range of physical and sensory needs for children under the age of 6.
To make sure your views are heard, please complete our short online Queens Park Play Area Phase 2 Consultation.
The consultation is open until 3 December.
Introducing new outdoor gyms to the city
We’re proposing to install new free access outdoor gym equipment at Victoria Recreation Ground and Preston Park.
The equipment we propose to include is a mix of items that are suitable for everyone in the city, including those with disabilities.

The consultations are open until 3 December.
Accessible spaces for everyone in Brighton & Hove
Councillor Tim Rowkins, Chair of the City Environment, South Downs and The Sea Committee, said: “Challenging, fun and inclusive play areas are fundamental to every community.
“Following our existing programme of playground refurbishments across the city, we are very keen to hear from residents how we might continue our work to create exciting, modern and accessible outdoor spaces.
“We also want to help residents be physically active, and our plans to introduce two new outdoor gyms will create opportunities for anyone wanting to get outside and get moving.
“It’s fantastic news for Queens Park that we’ve secured funding for further play equipment.
“With some refurbishments at Queens Park almost complete and ready for play, we’re keen to hear from parents and visitors what other equipment we can include to create an accessible and inclusive playground for children of all ages and abilities.
“It would also be great to hear what residents think about us bringing back the zip wire!”
