Equipment list for Fishersgate Recreation playground

  • Smaller children's play equipment - 2 to 6 years typically
  • Older children's play equipment - 6 years onwards typically

Fishersgate Recreation Ground is the largest green space in the area for local residents to enjoy.

A new playground was installed in Spring 2016 at an overall cost of 122K with funding coming from Adur District Council, Shoreham Port Regeneration Grant and £32k from Veolia following extensive fundraising by Friends of Fishersgate Recreation Ground (FoFR).

Built by Wicksteed Playgrounds it features at its centre a colossal bespoke sharks head climbing feature surrounded by a zip wire and a variety of inclusive play equipment for children of all ages and abilities.

Very much a community park, it is also home to a roller hockey rink and the Fishersgate Community Association.

There are future plans to open refurbished changing rooms and for further multi-sports facilities.

Friends of Fishersgate Rec (FoFR)

'Friends of Fishersgate Rec' is all about the regeneration of the recreation ground.

Their aim is to provide local children of all ages (and local adults!) with some fantastic new equipment. This will include:

  • play/climbing equipment for young children
  • a 'multi-use games area'
  • skating/scooter area
  • and adult fitness equipment

This project has had great input from residents, particularly the school children, and following consultations they have now finalised the layout with the Council. This means that they will be able to start applying for funding very soon.
