Make a splash to start the summer - 20/06/18
Families will be able to make a splash this summer at six free paddling pools and water play areas at some of Hull’s parks.

The parks will open for the summer season and with what promises to be a scorcher, children will be able to use the water play areas and paddling pools to have fun and cool down.

Councillor Dave Craker, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Tourism, said: “Through the extra parks funding that was announced in the January Budget meeting, we are delighted to be able to open the paddling pools and water play area for the summer holidays.

“The summer break is a time when children and families can enjoy themselves, and what a better way to do this in our safe-staffed, free local parks?”

The sites that will open are Alderman Kneeshaw, Oak Road, Bude Park, Pickering Park, Ings and West Park.
