The LevelThe fences are coming down at the south end of The Level, which includes the children’s play area and the new skatepark, on Friday 26 July at 5pm, just in time for the summer holidays.

There will be ‘dancing’ fountains, a sensory garden, tables for board games and ping pong, a pétanque and seated bowls area, and picnic tables with embedded chessboards. Historic features from the early 1920s have been restored, including the park pavilions. The new skatepark, on the other side of the central Rose Walk path, will also be open for skaters and BMX riders.

The CityParks Projects team which has spearheaded the £2.3m restoration project, expects the rest of the northern area (including the specially-designed 2D artwork where the north lawns paths cross), plus the new eco-friendly café, to open in late August or early September.  The date for a grand opening event for the whole community to take part in and enjoy will be announced as soon as possible.

Find out more about the Level restoration project on the council’s website.

Hollingdean Skate Park planIt’s been a long time coming but at last the new skate park in Hollingdean Park, Lynchet Close, is happening! The contract has been awarded to Bendcrete.

Last week some of the skaters met with them to approve final changes, although there is very little change from the original design.

Bendcrete will liaise with the skaters throughout the build which starts on 8th May. It is expected to take approximately 6 weeks to build. The official opening will be at T in the Park on Sunday 1st July – so get the date in your diary.

The Level restoration projectBrighton & Hove is celebrating as the city council’s bid for a £2.2 million Lottery grant to restore The Level has been granted.  The money comes from the Funds’ joint Parks for People scheme.  More information on the council’s website.

As part of the overall restoration of The Level, Freestyle Skateparks have been appointed to design and build the new skatepark and work will now start on the design. Skaters and local residents will have an opportunity to feed into the process.

Once a design has been developed, the project team will work with the Brighton & Hove Skateparks Association to prepare funding bid applications to raise the additional funding required to build the skatepark. More details about the timescales and the consultation and engagement process for The Level Skatepark will follow shortly.
