Crawley’s oldest park will celebrate a diamond milestone next month with games, bands and a picnic.

Everyone is invited to Goffs Park on Sunday June 8 to mark the 60th anniversary of the park.

Celebrations will begin at 12.30pm with a picnic on the top lawn and the afternoon will be filled with bouncy castles, games for all ages, music and entertainment.

The Friends of Goffs Park are organising the event and will also be celebrating 10 years as an association.

The group works in partnership with Crawley Borough Council to preserve, develop and improve the environment and facilities of the town’s first public park.

In 1954, the last parcel of land was transferred to complete Goffs Park and create a beautiful place to visit for the residents of the recently formed new town of Crawley.

It now boasts a play area, pitch and putt course, model railway, a museum, a varied events calendar and Green Flag awards.
