Eastway is a multi-use sports facility for young people based behind the Old Baths on Eastway in Hackney Wick which opened in February 2022.
It is operated by Young Hackney, the Council’s Early Help service for young people aged between 6 and 19 (or up to 25 for people with special education needs and/or disabilities). The project encourages young people to lead healthy lifestyles by staying active, spending time outdoors, engaging with nature and having fun outside of school.
The Council will operate the facility for the first six years while longer term proposals are developed for the site which will be informed by the activities and use of this meanwhile project.
