A large open space comprising more than 15 hectares runs along Gosport Road and next to the airport. When it opens it will benefit the local community, visitors and employees that work nearby.
Throughout 2020, and despite the pandemic, works to the new open space by National Grid's contractors have been ongoing. Dates for opening the site will be announced as soon as all the works are complete but, in the meantime, passers by can enjoy the Daedalus sculpture which was installed in 2021.
View our video to see how it was installed.
There is also an exciting new children's play area with an aircraft theme that children and families can enjoy all year round. You can find more information about the Daedalus Common play area on the 'play areas' section of our website.
