And I'm so glad. Happy Mount Park is the same today as it was 45 years ago when I was a child. And that, to my mind, is a very good thing!

The superb weather we've been having this month resulted in us heading over to Happy Mount to take the kids to the splash park. It's a great little park, loads for the kids to do, plenty of places for grandparents to have a sit down in the shade. Great day out all round.
Only fault, and sadly, it's quite a big one, is the lack of toilet facilities. There is 1 block of toilets, nowhere near enough for a park this size, especially in this weather when the park is heaving, and especially if 1 of them is out of order. Queue was over 30min, with a small child moaning "I neeeeeeed a weeeeeee". If you're going to charge people 20p to go to the loo, you may as well up it to 50p and get a few more in there. Or why not get some portaloos in there just for peak season and days when it's likely to be packed. They may not be luxurious, but they'd work in a pinch.

After ringing up yesterday about disabled parking for mini buses and being told that they was adequate parking available, we visited the park today and ended up with a very disappointed playsheme as there was only a limited amount of disabled parking spaces at the rear of the park available and u could not park a minibus in the allocated spaces, this lead to us not being to access the park even though the woman who I spoke to the previous day assured me that parking was adequate

great park in Morecambe. If it's hot the splash park will entertain the kids for hours. There is a quite new adventure park at the back of the park which can't be missed. The café is good and on a Sunday during the summer there are brass bands playing - just lovely !!
