What a fantastic place, even on a chilly day. The young kids (5, 8 & 12) enjoyed every minute of this rustic adventureland and the old kids (42, 70 & 76) did too. It’s been years since we’ve been here, and there are great new attractions (and proper loos too!) and the food is as scrummy as ever. Utterly delightful, will definitely return at least a couple times a year from now on. The kind owner (with a wicked sense of humour and gift of creative engineering) is going to help us organize a family reunion there this summer, can’t wait!" Yes!  We are open all of Queens Birthday Weekend! 
10am - 4pm every day.
Come celebrate🥳🥳🥳 , bring your dogs, your kids, your Mum and Dad, your neighbours, friends....its a Queen's Birthday weekend to enjoy! Meet the Newman Family from Sheffield, UK!  

Thursday was a rainy day with thunderstorms and all was quiet at The Waterworks.... in walk the Newmans!  Crazier than a family of Kiwi's!  Off they went to venture into the park amidst the pouring rain and thunder! Olly who is 10 said "It was amazing" My sister fooled me into getting sprayed by the toilet seat and I got so wet! It was great!!!" Rain, Hail or Shine you are guaranteed a great time at The Waterworks!🤩🤩🤩
