The Tunbridge Wells Grosvenor and Hilbert Park, designed in 1889 by Rupert Marnock, is the town’s oldest park.

The main changes which will occur in the park will see the increase in size of the existing Pavilion building and enhance the facilities. As well as increasing the opportunity for volunteering.

The upgrading of the park includes signage at the entrances to provide a welcoming arrival as well as the renovation and conservation of Marnock Lake. In addition there will the restoration and extension of the teenage play zone near the Skate Park.

As well as conserving the physical features, management skills and horticultural skills will be improved and five new apprentices assigned to work with the management team.

The redevelopment will further enhance the natural and social heritage at the park and will also provide opportunities for community involvement.
