The opening hours of the splash park in Fairlands Valley in Stevenage have been extended following appeals from the public.

Fairlands Valley Aqua Park was only due to open at weekends until the school summer holidays, when it would open every day until September. 

However, Everyone Active, which runs the facility, has now decided to open the splash park every day with immediate effect, until September 3.


A spokesperson for Stevenage Borough Council, which contracted Everyone Active to look after the facility, said: "You can now make a splash at our aqua park every day.

"Everyone Active listened to your comments, and the aqua park will now be open every day, subject to the weather. This starts from this week, and the opening hours are 10am to 5pm."

The free-to-use aqua play park features three splash pads. There are fountains and other interactive water features which spray, mist, squirt and shoot water around the play area, providing a fun and safe environment for children to enjoy. There's also a food kiosk and public toilets.
