Splash parks and outdoor pools

Water splash parks

Our four splash parks open from 10am to 6pm, seven days a week during summer.

A popular 120 metre long paddling pool sits at the heart of Letchworth's Howard Park. Experience water jets, and paddle and splash about in the paddling pool during the warm summer months. Operational from early May until September. Refreshment kiosk, public toilets and a baby changing facility are also available.

Hitchin’s town centre ‘buccaneer’ themed splash park is 160 metres squared and includes features such as interactive water jets, tipping water buckets, a pirate ship and a play stream for younger children.

Royston's splash park in Priory Memorial Gardens is 160 metres squared and includes features like interactive water jets, a maypole and play streams for younger children and families of all ages to enjoy.

The splash park at Avenue Park in Baldock provides lots of water park fun for visitors during summer months.

Outdoor pools

Hitchin Swimming Centre and Letchworth Outdoor Pool each have heated 50 metre outdoor pools. There are also smaller heated pools for toddlers and younger children, grassed areas for sunbathing and cafés that provide refreshments and snacks.

A range of concessions are also available for families, multi-swim tickets and swim memberships. Both pools can be hired for private functions and pool parties.
