Happy Mount Park was originally created in the 1920s as a traditional urban park area. Today's family-friendly attractions cater for more modern tastes, whilst carefully retaining the atmosphere of peace and tranquillity of a traditional park.

Splash Park – Admissions Policy
Following feedback from visitors, a new admissions policy was introduced last year, to ensure as many people as possible can comfortably use the facility on the busiest days and when there is a unprecedented demand which could exceed capacity.
The maximum capacity for the facility will be 400 and a two hour time limit will be in effect, providing enough time to allow families to cool down in the water before allowing in the next group.
A notice will be posted on our Facebook page when this happens, so please ‘like’ us to keep up to date.
While people are waiting for the next set of admissions there are plenty of other free attractions on offer in the park including a play area for young children and an adventure play area for older ones.
The park is open daily from 8.30am to dusk.
