Eastway youth sports facility

Entered by Hackney Council

Eastway is an inclusive and sustainable youth sports and educational space, co-designed with young people in Hackney Wick.

The facility is a direct response to Hackney Council’s ‘Hackney Wick Through Young Eyes’ report, which identified a lack of places and good quality facilities for young people to engage in activities, stay active and participate in sport.

The result has seen underutilised public land repurposed to create a free to use sports pitch, studio and classroom for young people, flexibly designed to allow different uses in a small space – not just for sport but socialising, relaxing and engaging with nature.
