Priory Park

To celebrate the Rotary Club's centenary, a sensory garden was opened in May 2006. It sits in the north-west corner of Priory Park, beside the City walls, and was designed by a local garden designer.

 

----------

 

Priory Park is situated in the north-east corner of the walled city of Chichester. The park is bounded on the north and east by the City Walls and their rampart is within the park area. To the south and west the park is bounded by Priory Road and Priory Lane. There are two formal entrances to the park with wrought iron gates and a smaller picket gate that gives access to the City Walls.

 

The park contains three scheduled monuments (a status that indicates their national significance): the City Walls, The Guildhall and the remains of a Norman motte.

 

The Park has been used on many occasions for large community celebrations at Coronations, Jubilees, as well as the focus for the Chichester gala and the Real Ale and Jazz Festival. The site is within the Chichester City Conservation Area.
