Worth Park was laid out in the 1880s by Victorian garden designers Pulham and Son, and is a rare survival of an almost complete landscape by this celebrated firm.
It has recently been restored to its former glory by Crawley Borough Council, thanks to a £2.42 million Heritage Lottery-funded grant.
The park has formal gardens, a stunning fountain, stone balustrading, a listed rockery, a wooded lake, a meadow, croquet lawns and a tennis court. Toilets and parking are available at our visitor centre, Ridleys Court.
Worth Park is in the neighbourhood of Pound Hill. You can visit the park by:
From Three Bridges station walk east along Worth Park Avenue and then left into Milton Mount Avenue. The walk takes 15-20 minutes.
Every Wednesday at 10.30am.
