Summer’s on its Way & the Quarry Splash Park is set to Re-open

Summer's on its Way & the Quarry Splash Park is set to Re-open

In a sign that the summer season is fast approaching, Shrewsbury Town Council has been working towards re-opening the award-winning Quarry Splash Park in time for the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

The official opening is scheduled to take place on April 29 at 10.30am.

The ever-popular water feature was opened in 2016 alongside the refurbished play area, which incorporates traditional play equipment such as slides and swings, as well as fountains and water features.

The Town Council has ensured that the area has had a thorough clean, the mechanisms for the water features have been serviced and their staff have received refresher training in readiness for the new season.

Helen Ball, town clerk for Shrewsbury Town Council, said: “We know that our Splash Park in the Quarry has become such a firm favourite with our visitors and it’s great that the re-opening is now eagerly anticipated each summer and is a go-to destination for families across the region.

“Whilst we are still seeing Coronavirus cases within the community, we would ask that families take all necessary precautions whilst they are using the Splash Park.

“We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will be good for this weekend, although as it’s the May Day Bank Holiday, we’re hoping that we’re not going to see the typical British Bank Holiday weather.”

Opening times for the Splash Park can be found on the Town Council’s website at:
