Progress is continuing on the revamp of a popular park.

Workers have been busy clearing space at The Level in Brighton as part of a £2.2 million project.

The park, which is due to reopen in July, has been used by the public for more than 200 years.

The open space of 8.5 hectares between Lewes Road and Ditchling Road is having the makeover as part of a wider scheme to improve the Lewes Road and London Road areas.

Among the improvements will be adding a new playground, fountains, a sensory garden and tables for board games and table tennis. A new cafe and public toilets will also be added, and the skate park will be moved from its current location to the northern part of the park, which is now flat open space.

Table tennis in a park in the open air? That should be fun! One breath of wind and the ping pong ball will be gone. Is this a serious proposition?

Yep, they're already all over the City. Works surprisingly well. Although, you're right sometimes the wind does play havoc with my attempted corkspin counter-drive flicked smash.

People vote Green, and then wonder why they end up with outdoor table tennis?

Really?

Well, I voted Green and I am really happy that even during a recession the council have been able to lever in a lot of outside funding so that a dowdy but popular park is being redesigned and made more usable.

A number of sponsored table tennis tables have been in the city for months and seem to have been a success.

Good for you HJarrs.
Its nice that you middle class Green voters in Hanover are being catered for.
Shame the council are closing care homes but who cares about the poor and the needy.

Do you ever give up on this ridiculous crusade Yoyo? Show us some hard evidence or shut up and stop side lining stories that have nothing to do with your drug induced fantasies.

It was slightly odd back in the summer - now it's actually becoming a little weird and creepy. Funkyyoyo, can you give it a rest for a while and get back to your collection of Noddy memorabilia? Cheers ;-)
