The design for our new splash park has now been revealed. The new facility will be located in Gadebridge Park, Hemel Hempstead, and will have 59 water jets and a splash zone of more than 1,000 square metres.

Groundwork will begin in September and the splash park will be open to the public next summer (2018).

Cllr Janice Marshall, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Sustainability, said, “It’s great that we are able to invest in this new facility in our borough’s principal park. Our parks have so much to offer and this addition will be greatly enjoyed by local residents and visitors from the surrounding area.”

Hemel Hempstead Splash Park will be free to use and we will also be building additional seasonal toilets near the park and a kiosk, which will serve refreshments and snacks. The splash park will have a dedicated seating area for parents and be next to a brand new play area, which can be enjoyed all year round.
