The Water Adventure Play Park is located on Knightstone Road which is the Sea Front Road next to the Melrose Car Park.
The Water Park opened on 17th July 2010, and since then has become a popular attraction on Weston's seafront.
The park is open all year round (except for grounds maintenance and extreme weather), with the splash pad running seasonally (weather dependant) from April to September. This year the re-commissioning of the water play area will take place in April due to the unseasonably cold weather in March. The Park opens at 9.30 am most days and closes at dusk, or 6pm.
Seasonal Charges of £1.50 are made from 1st May to 31st August 2013 inclusive, between opening time and 4pm for children between the ages of 1-16 years of age.
The Splash Pad
The splash pad offers a range of fountains and sprays which are triggered by sensors and buttons. These run for a short period of time before they need to be triggered again.
The Port beacon, the tallest piece of equipment on the splash pad, emits a rain shower effect while others create tunnels and arches.
The Wooden Play Equipment
The wooden play equipment includes the Stockholm Castle, a double cable way and a toddler area where the musical can play the xylophone or crawl through a short tunnel. A sand pit is located near the rear of the park along with a climbing pyramid and snake swing.
The Town Mayor at the time, Councillor Philip Judd, said: "The new facility is a terrific asset to Weston-super-Mare and will further boost the tourism prospects of the town and provide an all year round facility for local residents and visitors."
The development of the Water Park was part funded through North Somerset Council and their success in obtaining grant funding through the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) and the Sea Change Programme. The total cost of the project came to £435,000, of which £125,000 came via North Somerset Council from CABE.
