The Level Restoration begins.

A last look at the old Level
A much anticipated project to regenerate and transform a communal space in the heart of Brighton city centre – at The Level – gets underway next week: 15 October 2012.  Work to provide a package of improvements, including a new playground, skatepark and cafĂ©, is due for completion next summer.

A final community event will be held at The Level this Saturday, 13 October 2012, from 12 noon to 4pm, providing an afternoon of fun for park users and local residents.  There will be games and sports activities, a skate jam, and the Play Bus will be there offering a range of children’s play activities.

There will also be a chance for people to meet the contractors and the council’s parks team, to learn more about the project; find out about opportunities for volunteering at the new-look park when it reopens; share memories of The Level with a historian recording the history of the park; and meet community artists who are creating a new piece of artwork. Some of the council’s sheep will also be on site with their shepherd.

Jan Jonker, Brighton & Hove City Council’s head of strategy and projects, says: “Local people have been involved throughout the planning stages of the project and we hope many more residents will come down to The Level on Saturday to enjoy some entertainment before the work gets underway.  Once completed, the area will be an attractive space, in one of the busiest parts of the city, for all ages to enjoy.”
