Millhouses Park Splash Re-Opens!
The work on Millhouses Park Splash! Waterplay is now complete and the facility is now open for play!!!
SPLASH! Waterplay Works Extended
The improvements to the drainage at SPLASH! Waterplay will be continuing for slightly longer than planned. This means that the attraction will remain closed for approximately 10 days. The improvements will mean that the drainage system does not become clogged with silt and debris, so we’ll have cleaner water and the facility will be able to stay open longer without the drains being unblocked – so it’s definitely worth the time being spent here!
SPLASH! should be open in time for the decent weather that we’re all looking forward to! In the mean time, don’t forget to come back here regularly to check for updates!

A Reminder of Where We Came From!
Just think – our great new Splash feature and amazing playground… …what did it look like the mid-90’s?

Splash tree planting
Many thanks to those who came down for the Splash tree planting on Friday – sunshine and smiles all round – a feel good occasion.
After five years of pushing, fund raising, consultation and a few tears Splash is due to open in a couple of weeks time and be fully functioning by spring bank holiday.
It is intended to have a celebration occasion to mark the opening of Splash and the Fish Ladder in early June, perhaps combined with our garden plant exchange.
Do not forget the final planting of the Fish Ladder on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 April.
