Outdoor Water Fun

I love the summer time (even though I look more like a snowman by the time I’m done with the suncream).

It can be a struggle to know what to do when it gets hot and how to keep the kids cool. So here are our top places for some water fun in Worcestershire – I never knew we were so lucky to have so many splashpads – enjoy!!!

Splashpad, Gheluvelt Park, Worcester

Perfect for cooling down – the kids will love the splash pad with its pools and fountains.

Droitwich Lido

Worcester Road, Droitwich Spa. WR9 8AA

Due to reopen on 1 August to 13 September. Sessions will be time limited and numbers reduced. Online booking to be put in place.

The Droitwich Spa Lido is Worcestershire’s finest outdoor pool, open during the summer months it’s the ideal day out for all the family. There’s plenty here to keep the kids happy with a ‘Wet Play Area’ full of water cannons and fountains.

Droitwich Spa Lido is one of the UK’s few remaining open-air saltwater swimming pools, and with a 40m pool, wet play area, sun terraces and Lido Café you’re sure to have a memorable day out that won’t break the bank.
