Palatine Park in Goring gets a new 3G pitch

Palatine Park in Goring, West Sussex  will be the new recipient of a 3G pitch facility. When complete the new pitch will be managed by South Downs Leisure with use shared between pre-arranged community hire and Worthing Town FC, which has more than 500 players in men’s, women’s and youth teams.

The new 3G pitch is worth £902,000 with two-thirds of the funding coming from a Football Foundation grant. The work began on site on July 26th and aims to complete by the winter.

Meanwhile, the play area in the park is being updated and improved. The old and run down equipment at the park will be replaced, following a consultation with people in the local area, with new facilities for children of all ages to enjoy and use to get active.

The intention is to ensure residents have as much access as possible to regular exercise opportunities, which supports overall wellbeing.

Councillor Edward Crouch, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Digital & Environmental Services, said:

“We are determined to provide high-quality places for people to exercise and take part in activities which support their wellbeing. We’re glad to partner with South Downs Leisure and the Football Foundation for the investment in a new 3G football pitch at Palatine Park  supporting, enhancing and creating a range of facilities for our residents.

“I have been particularly pleased with our park rangers’ who have engaged with the public to create a new and improved play park for the local community that children of all ages will be able to enjoy for years to come.”
