This is a purpose-built pond dating from the 1920's. Trevor Smith reports that although the clubs use it in spring and autumn, in summer there is competition from pedal and rowing boats.
There is plenty of information about the pond on both clubs' websites.

I have found a pond in Hastings which is not listed. It is in Alexander
Park, a victorian linea park that is listed in the ten top victorian
parks. It is 3/4 of a mile from the town centre and is approached along
Queens Rd. It has parking alond two of the roards one for 2 hrs and
the other for 4. Both a very close to the water. The park has 5 lakes
,built from a damed stream. One is a resoivior. The boating lake is
the most southern and nearst the sea,the others a for fishing and ornamental
purposes. The boating lake is about 5 acres in extent and wader depth,
acess all round the the edge. There is a water arch feature,and the
pond has apeared in the model boating press. I could not find out if
there is a local club.but isuspect there is one. The pond has been
used in the past for rowing boats but is not used for the purpose now.
The atmospher is wonderfull, very peaceful,and the park is patrolled
wardens, so you will not have your model shot at by yobs with stones
as i did at Malden in essex.
