Great for Kids

Took our grandchildren who thoroughly enjoyed the water park. They particularly like the wave pool and mastered it without any problems.

What a great idea - a free water park for the children. Areas to play for both the young and older kids. Our kids had a great time there and kept asking to go back. The adults enjoyed the boardwalk.

ITS FREE!! The weather was cold wet and windy, yet the kids had a blast. The lifeguards on patrol were splendid and kept the order well! Whilst none of the adults took part (and stood because even though there were plenty of chairs and tables, they were all wet!), the kids loved the slides, the water bucket, the spouts, the... More

Unbelievable that this is a free water park. Hours of entertainment to cool down and a great education on water conservation

If you want your family to have hours of fun then this is the place to take them. And best of all it's free!!!! Adults and children alike will enjoy the features of the water park. Standing under the bucket as it pours loads of water on you is a thrill for young and old. Great holiday fun...

The kids loved the free water park, which is great for children aged about 2 - 12 years old. They play enjoyable music over the speakers and also have made it educational. We visited it each day of our holidays! Closes over Winter.

This place is great if you have small kids (max 7 year olds) anything older than this and they are going to be bored. There is a splash bucket, a small slide and some water jets/fountains. Try it, you might like it!
