Splashpad set to make waves this summer
Residents and visitors are in for a cool treat this summer, as the council has confirmed the opening times and dates for Gorleston's fun wet play facility.
The splashpad at Gorleston beach, which has fountain sprays, jet streams and buckets of tipping water, is set within an ocean-themed play environment featuring a sail boat, fish, seaweed, starfish, and a crab. There are also colourful LED lights, plus benches for parents.
The splashpad will open for weekends from Saturday 7 May through to Sunday 25 September from 10am to 4pm. During peak times, from 28 May to 5 June and 23 July to 11 September, it will open for seven days a week. It is completely free of charge to use.
Cllr Carl Smith, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "Gorleston is a family resort, and we are pleased to be able to open the splashpad for children and young people to enjoy during the summer months. The splashpad provides a modern, free-to-use, wet play attraction for families and is one of the many great things Gorleston seafront has to offer."
