Some attended the official opening.

A council spokesman said: “The pre-existing wheelchair accessible toilet has been enhanced with a new hoist and changing table and is spacious enough to accommodate up to three people.”

Councillor Chris Mullins, cabinet member for Wellbeing, added: “The new changing facility is a great new addition to Tilgate Park and I am so pleased that we are continuing to make Crawley a more accessible place.”

This improved facility follows the recent opening of the Ryan Box Changing Places facility in County Mall.
