Southgate is located in the south of Crawley within walking distance of the town centre. Most of the area was built between the 1950s and 1970s and is named after the south toll gate from the London to Brighton road which runs through the neighbourhood. In the north of the neighbourhood near the railway there is an area of Victorian properties from the original village of Crawley.
The popular Goffs Park is located in Southgate and features a boating pond and lake, pitch and putt and a model railway. The area also benefits from a community centre, several schools and Southgate Playing Fields which is home to Crawley’s Skate Park.
