IN PICTURES: Summer opening for port splash pad

Work is well under way on Fleetwood’s brand new splash pad – which should be ready in time for the main summer season.

As part of the £1.5m Five for Fleetwood project, the splash pad, with a paddling area and exciting water features, will enhance leisure facilities along the beach and promenade.

Bob Boal, of Fleetwood Community Trust, said: “We are delighted it is nearing completion. We are a little bit disappointed that it is taking time to get there, hopefully it won’t miss out any of the summer weather.”

Elsewhere on the promenade, Fleetwood’s Euston Gardens have been renovated and construction work continues on the new skate park.

The splash pad is being built on the site of the disused outdoor swimming pool at the YMCA leisure centre.
