Have a splashing time at Happy Mount Park

Welcome to Morecambe's Happy Mount Park - a traditional family park with modern facilities and attractions, including a free splash park.

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.

The park is open from 8.30am all year round and entry is free.

Happy Mount Park Master Plan

Various consultations have taken place over the last year.  From these a group has worked with a designer to develop a draft master plan for the next 10 - 20 years of the park.  See the downloads on the right of the page.

The overriding comments which have driven the design of the plan is that most users love the park as it is! Therefore, the master plan is about maintaining the current character of the park and preserving/enhancing it for the future.
