A note on safety
Bexhill BMX and Skate Park is an extreme sports facility and not a playground. It is an unsupervised facility and should be used for its intended purpose only. All persons use it at their own risk. Rother District Council and its employees do not accept responsibility or liability for any claim, loss or damage whatsoever which may result from its use.
For the safety of users, a code of conduct is displayed on site which we ask all riders to respect. This includes the need to use protective equipment, for individuals to ride within their ability, to pay attention to others and wait their turn.
To ensure both riders and the public stay safe and to prevent damage to the facilities, especially the BMX race track and jump park, we ask that dogs, scooters, motorised vehicles including remote controlled cars and motorbikes are not brought onto the facilities.
Unfortunately, no car parking facilities are available on-site. Parking on Canada way is for residents only. A free car park is located approximately 5 minutes walk away, behind the Ninfield Road shops at TN39 5BA.
