Attraction Information

There’s something cathartic about being close to water and wildlife and at Hemsworth Water Park and Playworld you get both!

With not one lake, but two you can grab your fishing tackle and choose between riding pedalos and docking on a sandy beach to a more secluded spot that’s ideal for wildlife spotting. If you can tear yourself away from the lakeside tranquility there’s an adventure playground in the site where children can speed down the tower slide, go up the climbing frame and toddlers can play in the sandpit.

Everything you need to make the most of the space is on site. Hire pedalos, paddleboards and canoes for just £1.00 per person, buy ice creams and bucket and spades from the beach shop and pick up your permit for all day fishing.

Enjoy an accessible and eclectic outdoor space!
