A new purpose-built leisure facility in the north side of Stanborough Park.
Despite the weather, work is progressing well during early 2020!
The first part of the 600m2 splash pad and filter system is installed. This will have a paddling river meandering through the centre and will be surrounded by a nautical themed adventure play area - including a large pirate ship - and a variety of other play equipment for children of all ages.
An outdoor gym and sports pitch will provide teenagers and adults with a range of new health and fitness activity options.
The refurbishment of the toilet block and a new kiosk enhances existing facilities, with the current play area being replaced with an assortment of seating and picnic spaces, more in keeping with a riverside environment.
Entrance to the park will remain free.
Splashlands is scheduled to open in 2020, coinciding with Welwyn Garden City's centenary year.
