West Marina Gardens
The gardens were purchased by the Corporation in 1886 as part of a general improvement scheme for the area.
Much of the hard work in laying out the gardens was done by the unemployed of the area and the gardens were official opened by Mayor Bradnam in 1891.
By 1908 they were being used for tennis, bowls and croquet.
The statue of 'Edith finding the body of Harold on the battlefield of Hastings' by the sculptor, C.A.W. Wilke was moved from the museum to West Marina in 1953.
Suitable for disabled access.
A small (15,000 square metres) and flat site with an extensive path network and lots of seating, West Marina Gardens also includes a single bowls green and formal gardens.
It is located at the western end of St Leonards seafront promenade overlooking the sea and has ample roadside parking and public toilets.
West Marina is home to the West Marina Bowls Club who have their club house on site. The bowls club is privately operated by St Leonards Bowls Club. Please see below for contact details.
