Barking & Dagenham swimming pool is transformed into The Pool BMX park

Posted at 10:00 am, May 28, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

© The Pool Nike and London Borough of Barking and Dagenham have teamed up to turn a soon-to-be demolished public swimming pool (above) into a temporary freestyle BMX park (below) to be enjoyed by one and all. Beginners and experts are welcome and there will be bikes to borrow and pros on hand to teach you the moves. The scheme hopes to inspire a new generation of BMXers, with all bikes being donated to local schools and a new BMX park being built in the area once the buidling closes for good. The Pool will be open 11am-8pm every weekend and during half term (next week) to June 12.
