Looking for somewhere to cool down when it’s hot? There’s a splash park in Wellingborough. It’s not as big as the Leighton Buzzard Splash Park nor does as it have a large playground. But it is free to enjoy and free to park. It’s set next to the River Nene and it’s great fun to watch the boats, take a picnic and go for a walk. There are loos and a couple of food vans there. It’s open 12pm-6.30pm every day between Thursday 21st July 2016 and 4th September. Then weekends during September and October and every day 24th October – 30th October. It’s about 35 minutes to drive from MK (use the postcode NN8 1LD) so if you want to make a full day of it whilst you’re out that way then Irchester Country Park is literally a couple of minutes away. Stanwick Lakes and Sywell Country Park aren’t too far either.
I'm Laura, mum of two boys - aged six and four. I started this website at the end of Sept 2015 whilst on maternity leave. I now work four days a week and do this blog late at night once the little boys are sleeping. It's won several awards over the last four years and I continue to run it for free and mostly focus on free, cheap, and good value days out. Do drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contact me. Don't forget to follow all of our latest adventures on facebook, instagram and twitter and have a look at all of the videos of the places we visit on the Milton Keynes Kids YouTube Channel - subscribe to it for notifications every time I add a new place. And remember... you may been reading this post months after we visited, do check with the destination you're visiting for up to date opening times and prices. If you find this blog useful then please do comment on my posts and leave me a Facebook review - it makes doing this all the more worthwhile.
