New splash zone coming to Borehamwood!

Last Modified February 11, 2022
 

Planning Committee last night (Thursday 10 February) approved plans for a new splash zone as part of the next phase of improvements at Meadow Park in Borehamwood.

This follows on from the council’s Executive group who approved designs and funding for the splash zone on Wednesday, 9 February.

The proposed splash zone includes 23 in-ground jets from arching features to crawl under to large columns of water to run or jump through. There is also a Hula Spray, which forms a circular water jail, and a number of Hydro Blast’s including a fountain like spray in the centre which reaches 3.5m high – are you brave enough!

Cllr Seamus Quilty, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “Meadow Park is a key open space in the heart of Borehamwood and these additional improvements will create a great place for families with children of all ages to get outside and have fun.

“The splash zone has two distinct areas to allow different ages to play safely and have maximum fun! We are working hard to get this amazing facility open for the summer.

“Our parks team have been working hard to improve the park and it has already benefitted from new play spaces, refurbished sports courts and landscaping. The new splash zone will add an exciting new environment for children in Borehamwood, whilst being inclusive for all abilities, to encourage physical and social play.”

In 2018, the council completed phase one of the parks improvements project. This included establishing an inclusive toddler play area and large landscaped activity area for older children, creating a fitness zone, installing electronic interactive play equipment, creating new footpaths across the park to improve access and new entrance barriers to prevent unauthorised vehicle access and landscaping.

"The plans for Meadow Park has something for everyone, from the children's splash zone through to the improved sports facilities,” adds Cllr Quilty.

"By improving the council's open spaces we show our commitment to supporting our residents to lead healthier lives. The last few years have shown more than ever the positive impact on health and wellbeing of our parks and open spaces. We are delighted to continue investing in them."

Our newly resurfaced tennis courts, basketball court and Multi Use Games Area are already welcoming players. To book these courts please visit www.clubspark.lta.org.uk/MeadowParkBorehamwood
