Residents can now enjoy an upgraded and more disabled-friendly pathway at Hailsham Country Park, as work on the resurfacing of the path around the country park lake has now finished.
The work carried out included the covering of the existing path with uniform tarmac, making it more accessible for disabled users.
“Hailsham Country Park is a much-loved community site and provides local users with many opportunities to enjoy the vibrant open space for leisure and other activities,” said Town Mayor Councillor Paul Holbrook. “Local residents have stressed the need to improve accessibility around the lake at the country park. We’ve listened and I’m delighted to see that the perimeter path resurfacing work has been completed.”
Councillor Richard Grocock, chairman of the Town Council’s Assets Management Committee said: “We hold great pride in our open spaces and work hard work to ensure that the high standards expected from users of the spaces are met.”
“We endeavour to undertake necessary maintenance, repairs, restoration and improvement of the country park and make it as accessible as possible for members of the local community.”
Other recent improvement works carried out on the Hailsham Country Park site include the resurfacing of the car park off Gleneagles Close, replacing the original surface which was showing signs of deterioration with new tarmac. Additionally, the cutting back of the tree canopy at the entrance to the car park was undertaken and designated parking bays have been introduced with appropriate markings to prevent disabled visitors being obstructed by other visitors.
