Hove Lagoon :: Shared Description

The Hove lagoon was originally built in 1930 and the layout has changed very little. It was built specifically for serious model yachts and was later used for power boats

In the 1950s to '60s there used to be a small train that ran round the north side of the lagoon and also running up until the '70s there used to be motor boats for hire in the large lake and rowing boats and canoes in the smaller
lake.

At the eastern end is a playground with swings and seesaw etc, this has recently been modernized somewhat and also includes a paddling pool too.

The original cafe at the east end of the lagoon is still open and looks pretty much the same as it always did, although now renamed "The big fish cafe".
