The Source Park, a world class BMX and Skate Park created from the derelict Victorian White Rock swimming baths, under the promenade in Hastings, welcomed its first riders and Skaters in March last year.
Since opening it has hosted two global BMX events which have been live-streamed utilising the University’s broadcast media expertise. Highlights of the 2017 event are available to watch online.
The Source Park has now been nominated in the 2017 Historic England Angel Awards in the “Best rescue of a historic building” category. The awards, which celebrate the efforts of people taking action to champion their local heritage, were founded by Andrew Lloyd Webber and are co-funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.
