Little splashes, big fun! Our puddle park is inflatable fun for children under 6 years old. Situated on the water, with direct access from land, means the whole family now gets to have inflatable water fun. Getting wet is compulsory!

We’ve discovered that even the really little ones want to have fun on the water.

The Puddle Park is an outdoor adventure with bouncy slides, lots of splashes, water fun and plenty of laughter, ideal for children aged 1-5 years.

What to Bring:

  • We recommend you bring along a towel, suitable swimwear for cold water adventures, and some spare clothes.
  • Our puddles are very shallow, so shorts or rolled-up trousers are perfect for adults!
  • A children’s wetsuit is not necessary for the Puddle Park, however they can be hired if required.
