Do you enjoy the outside life? Hailsham Town Council has launched another campaign to encourage residents to visit Hailsham Country Park and enjoy the beauty of the spring and forthcoming summer season.

The council-maintained Country Park, situated off Gleneagles Drive, covers approximately 22 acres and incorporates woodland, a recreational grass area, two ponds and a lake.

A water course skirts the open field area and all-weather footpaths can be found throughout the park to encourage people of all ages to enjoy this precious open space area.

“Offering magnificent views and with so much to offer, the Country Park is an ideal place to get away from it all,” said Karen Moralee, clerk to the council’s Parks, Open Spaces and Sports Committee. “Residents and visitors can bring their family and a picnic, do a spot of fishing at the Gleneagles lake, jog, spot wildlife, exercise their dog or encourage their children to let off steam using the open space to fly a kite!”

Hailsham Town Council is proud of its many improvements to the site in recent years, including the construction of a new path around Wentworth Pond and other area-specific projects.

Furthermore, the park’s high level of maintenance by town council works staff, together with regular monitoring of the area by a water bailiff, has ensured that the site remains a safe and clean public green space for the whole community to enjoy.

Town Clerk John Harrison said, “The town council maintains more than 20 acres of public space, which includes a variety of formal parks and recreation grounds, woodland, lakes and heathland.

“With the compliments of the council, I would encourage people to take a stroll around Hailsham Country Park and enjoy it during the summer months.”
