What was once destined to be filled with concrete and consigned to history,  the 130 year old Victorian swimming bath complex beneath the seafront promenade in Hastings has been saved by Source BMX – and is now what is being called the world’s largest underground skate park!


The Source Park will open its doors to skaters and BMX riders for the first time TODAY (Saturday 13th Feb) after a  £1.17 million overhaul of the 19th century White Rock Baths was given the go ahead by Hastings Borough Council in June 2014.  

The designs for the park were drawn up by Worthing-based Saville Jones and construction work began in March


Funding for this project has come from a a variety of generous donors including Hastings Borough Council, East Sussex County Council, the Foreshore Trust, the national Coastal Communities Fund and The Source Hastings.
