Youngsters invited to cool off in splashpad this summer
Residents and visitors are in for a cool treat this summer, as the council announces the opening times for Gorleston's splashpad for the upcoming season.
The fun wet play facility at Gorleston beach boasts fountain sprays, jet streams and buckets of tipping water all set within an nautical-themed play area 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, June 10, through to Sunday, July 16, from 10am to 4pm. During peak times - from May 27 to June 4 and July 22 to September 9 - it will open for seven days a week. It is free of charge to use.
Jane Beck, Head of Property and Asset Management, said: "Gorleston is a popular family resort and the seafront has many great things to offer."
"We are pleased that the splashpad is a big hit with residents and visitors during the summer months, providing a free-to-use, wet play attraction for families with young children to enjoy."
