Redhill Memorial Park re-opened in October 2014 following a major refurbishment. The children’s play area was moved to a more central location and the Park now benefits from a sports zone with free tennis courts and multi use games area with trim trail. Also new is a community orchard and sensory garden which is a delight for visitors of all ages.
The Park is home to one of the VC Commemoration stones that are being laid in, or close to, the birth place of all WW1 Victoria Cross recipients. 2Lt Rupert Price Hallowes was born on 5 August 1881 in Station Road Redhill and was awarded his VC for ‘Most Conspicuous Bravery and Devotion to Duty’ during the fighting in Hooge, Belgium.
