In a recent press release, Guildford Borough Council described the Stoke Park site as "one of the most important in Surrey".  According to the council, 700,000 people visit the park, which lies on the edge of the town, every year. They purchased the site from Lord Onslow in 1925 being, as it was, the site of an 18th Century estate, with Grade 2 listed Victorian buildings and a kitchen garden. It holds a prestigious national Green Flag Award, and has been the venue for the Surrey County Show for over 60 years. Spectrum Leisure Centre and Guildford Lido, one of the last surviving outdoor pools in the UK, are also part of the park. 

 

Plans being considered include the building of a visitor centre and new catering facilities, as well as a venue for more local events and activities. The council indicate they will carry out extensive public consultation this summer to explore ways in which the site can be improved.

Ideas put forward by the council in their press release include

  • celebrating the part that the town has played in driving forward economic growth,
  • better facilities for children’s play, and
  • restoration of the heritage features, which include the kitchen garden, Cascades and Japanese Garden.

There could also be a focus on nature conservation, the town’s well-developed cultural links, its sporting heritage, or its significance as a place of worship.
