The   Friends   and   Crawley   Borough   Council   have   been   working   together   since   June   2007   to   secure   Heritage Lottery Funding f or Worth Park.   T his   public   park    and   the   former   stable   block,   Ridley’s   Court,   are   all   that   remains   of   the   former   country estate   which   was   owned   by   a   branch   of   the   Montefiore    family.   After   the   First   World   War,   Milton   Mount College,    a   boarding   school   for   girls,   bought   the   Montefiore   mansion   and   parts   of   the   landholdings.   The school relocated in 1960 and sold the site to Crawley Borough Council. Main    features    of    the    park    are    Ridley’s    Court ,    containing    a    fully    refurbished    meeting    room    and interpretation   centre,   the   formal   gardens   with   the   Camellia   Walk    -   unique   in   its   design   -,   the   l arge   Pulham   Fountain , an Italianate Terrace (also by Pulham and Sons), Croquet lawns  and a much loved lake area .
