Splash Park

The splash park will be open daily from Thursday 20 July until Sunday 3 September, weather dependent.

Come and cool down in our state-of-the-art Splash Park. Children of all abilities can activate the sensor-operated water jets on our brightly-coloured interactive installation. The Splash Park is built on an outdoor soft play surface, so wheelchair users can access the fun. Get ready to get wet though, because once you’re in the splash zone there will be water everywhere!

Amongst the water jets a carousel of buckets spills water from above, a water arch sprays all who move through it, and cannons soak all those enjoying the watery fun.

Opening times

Opening times are weekends-only in term time and then fully during school holidays.

The Splash Park will be open daily from Thursday 20 July until Sunday 3 September, weather dependent.


Entry to the Splash Park costs £2 per person (including adults) and £1 for spectators for one of the six daily sessions. Payment is accepted by card only. Sessions can only be booked in advance on the day of the sessions and users will be provided with a date stamped coloured wristband after booking at the park kiosk. If an adult is planning on playing on the surface they will be required to pay £2.

Sessions are limited so that we don't exceed a safe capacity, as well as not putting too much of a demand on the pool system itself. The Splash Park operates a very similar system as at other swimming facilities, so the water is filtered and chlorine added to keep it clean and safe. If too many people use the facility at one time, the water can't process fast enough!

Session times

Below are the updated sessions times for the Splash Park. Last entry is 5pm. You will be issued with a coloured and date stamped wristband corresponding to the colours below:

Session time Wristband colour
10.15am – 11.15am  Blue
11.30am - 12.30pm Orange
12.45pm – 1.45pm Purple
2.00pm – 3.00pm Green
3.15pm – 4.15pm Red
4.30pm - 5.30pm Yellow

Advance school group bookings

We have introduced an advance booking system for schools. Schools should submit a school group booking form with the required date and admission time, and the details will then be put into the diary. They can either pay on the day of the visit or invoiced for the visit.

Birthday and private party bookings (term time only)

Birthday and private parties can only be booked on weekdays (Monday to Friday), and in term time only.  Birthday parties cannot be booked during school holidays.

There is a minimum booking cost of £60 for a one hour session and which includes a total of 30 children. If your booking exceeds 30 children each additional child is charged at £2 each. Two-hour sessions can be booked incurring the same charges.
