West Park play area was completely refurbished in summer 2018 following extensive consultation with the Community and children from the local schools with the installation of new play equipment aimed at children between 3 and 12 years of age.

The scheme was funded using £75k from Worthing Borough Council's Section 106 developer contributions.

This open space is the site of Worthing's main Leisure Centre and in addition to the leisure facilities that are part of the sports centre there is a basketball unit and small surfaced area and an adult size football pitch with changing facilities in the adjacent West Park Leisure Centre.

The next stage of improvements (scheduled for early 2019) will see the installation of gym style fitness equipment, further details can be found at:

For further details of the facilities available, please see the Worthing Leisure Centre (South Downs Leisure) website.
