A brand new splashpad in King's Hedges is now open and being enjoyed by many local residents and visitors.
Along with the splashpads at Abbey Pool play area and Coleridge recreation ground, the King's Hedges recreation ground splashpad completes Cambridge City Council’s new water play facilities.
King's Hedges splashpad has a space theme with 14 water play features including tipping buckets, water wheel, spray arch and a variety of above ground jets which will provide enormous fun for the children.
Activator pads allow the users to be in control of the sequencing of the features and the sprays.
Cllr Gerri Bird, Mayor of Cambridge, will officially open the King's Hedges splashpad on 18 August at 1.30pm. Residents are invited to come along and join in the water fun. A prize draw will take place giving juniors the chance to win a card for free swimming at the city’s pools.
Cllr Richard Johnson, Executive Councillor for Community, Arts and Recreation, said: “The new splashpad at King’s Hedges is a fantastic addition to the recreation ground.
“I know that the splash pad is already very popular with residents, children and families, so will provide excellent fun and free family days out over the summer holidays, as well as for years to come.
“It is great that local children will be involved in a project to paint the wall by the splashpad with ChYpPS. It will underline the fact that this facility is there for the pleasure of the local community.”
