Andy Edwards, Worthing Council’s Parks and Foreshore Manager, has recently confirmed that at the Joint Strategic Committee meeting at the beginning of December it was agreed that the Council would finance the refurbishment of both the Skate Park and the tennis courts in Homefield Park.
The skate park refurbishment will include complete resurfacing of the existing ramps as well as the addition of new ramps for wider age groups to use. The intention is to make the skate park more family friendly.
Thanks to the efforts of Tony Lelliott, Clive Roberts and Colm Sweet, the council will also be covering the cost of making the tennis courts into a Multi Use Games Area. The new multi-sports all weather surface will enable tennis, short tennis for younger children, disabled football, winter football training for Worthing Town Football Club, basketball, cricket, netball, bowls all seasons and more!
Work on these projects are due to start around March 2016.
