About this park

This site is located off the seafront on the eastern border of Worthing with the neighbouring town of Lancing.

It was once a Council waste tip until reclaimed in the late 1950s. It is now a large (45 acres) open space offering a range of sports and leisure facilities around an eight acre boating lake.

Brooklands also has a café which is presently temporarily closed, miniature railway, children's playground, accessible play equipment, boating lake, tractor rides, nine hole Par 3 golf course, pitch-n-putt, putting green, go-kart track and paddling pool (open during the summer) which are available all year round and are very welcoming for children of all ages and abilities; together with some landscaped areas that provide year round interest for all ages. Activities for Halloween and Christmas are also organised.  For more information about the facilities at Brooklands Park please contact the concessionaire, Mr McCluskey.

All in all Brooklands offers a fantastic day out for the whole family!

'We Play Too' and 'We Cycle too'
(accessible play equipment)

We play too

The playground at Brooklands caters for children from toddlers up to teenagers and has a range of fully inclusive play equipment plus accessible equipment designed for children living with a disability, such as wheelchair swings.

Although the Council's playground was already existing on the site, a local organisation 'We Play Too' was set up by a local mum as her daughter, who requires a wheelchair to get around, had no opportunities to play in Worthing's playgrounds or even to play with her brother which she very much wanted to.

We Play Too raised funds for an extension to Brooklands playground, provide a special toilet block equipped with a hoist and other specialist equipment for parents, provide designated parking and access improvements.

As a result Brooklands playground has doubled in size and now has two wheelchair swings to allow children to use the equipment and play together. Sound sensory equipment was also installed and is well used. The roundabout is fully inclusive, as is the basket swing and see-saw unit.

For more details see the 'all inclusive play park' - 'We Play too' - on the Brooklands Park website (currently off line

We cycle too

Following the success of the above 'We Cycle Too' which is an extension of 'We Play Too' has again fundraised and has installed a hard surfaced cycle track for wheelchair bicycles and bicycles suitable for children living with a wide range of disabilities. There are several bicycles on site which can be hired for use on the cycle track.
