If you have ever driven down the Embankment in Wellingborough on a really hot day, you are bound to have noticed the kids playing and cooling off in the splash park.
Free to enter and use, this splash park is really popular with the locals.
The perfect day to actually visit is on a warm but cloudy day!!
On really hot sunny days it gets incredibly crowded but on a warm but overcast day, like the day we went, it is much quieter.
There is room to sit around the water however only a small amount of it is shaded. There is free parking and toilets available. There is also a refreshments van.
