Chainsaw artist Daniel Cordell has created a nature-inspired bench out of a fallen tree in Hollingdean Park.
The Friends of Hollingdean Park and the council have worked with the artist to inspire the creation of the natural play feature.
Inspired by the fruits and leaves found around the park and the beetles and the Wartbiter Cricket found on chalk downland locally, the bench reflects the biodiversity of the Brighton and Lewes Downs Biosphere.
Bordered by the Downs, Hollingdean Park is near to the children’s centre and Hertford Junior School and a short distance from Hollingbury Hill Fort. The area also includes an orchard and forest garden planted by the Permaculture Trust and Friends of the Park.
The council will be installing more natural play features in city parks.
