Make a splash in Happy Mount Park

Children will be having a splashing great time in Morecambe’s Happy Mount Park this summer.

Splash Park 1
The Splash Park will re-open on May 1

The popular Splash Park, with its aqua arch, water fences, interactive water jets, sprays and cannons, will re-open on May 1.

A new admissions policy has been introduced for 2017 as a result of visitor feedback and sees the introduction of a £1 charge per person for one of the four daily sessions.

Sessions can be booked in advance on the day and users will be provided with a date stamped coloured wristband after booking at the park kiosk.

The charge is intended to help ensure families can book a session in advance on the day of their visit, manage potential issues of overcrowding and reduce any issues with queuing at the start of sessions.

Many visitors have advocated a small charge and its introduction will help to give as many people as possible the opportunity to enjoy the facility.

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. 

With shady woodland areas for quieter moments, sunny spots with beautiful flower beds and plenty of spaces for picnics, there is something for everyone.

Also returning for the summer months are the popular series of brass band concerts, which start on May 7 and run throughout the summer.

Starting at 2.30pm, the concerts are the perfect way to while away a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Bands making up this year’s line-up include the ever popular Morecambe Band, Blackpool Brass, Kendal Concert Band and Burneside Brass Band.
