Flower power brightens up Horsham this summer

Bandstand in Horsham's Carfax

Residents and visitors alike are being urged to explore Horsham Town centre whilst it is in full bloom with some stunning summer floral displays courtesy of Horsham District Council’s Parks and Countryside team.

Head to the historic Carfax market and take a stroll through West Street to the Bishopric where the waterfall has been re-instated.

Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture Cllr Jonathan Chowen said:

“It’s fantastic to see Horsham bursting with colour this summer with more planters and hanging baskets than ever before in the town centre.

“Providing colour and attractive surroundings for our residents and visitors to enjoy is a key priority for the Council’s Parks and Countryside team, it improves the overall visitor experience to the town which in turn is good for the local economy.”

“If you are in the area do come and enjoy the displays which are like a floral ribbon running through the town.”

In addition to the town centre planting the Council’s Parks and Countryside team also care for some 400 hectares of GreenSpace including Horsham Park, Chesworth Farm, Southwater Country Park, Warnham Local Nature Reserve, Horsham Riverside Walk and Leechpool and Owlbeech Woods. Entry to all but Warnham Nature Reserve is free.
