Stuck for ideas for the School Summer Holidays?

Make it a Bennett’s Splash this summer!


Bennett’s Splash and the Splashside Café will be open daily from Friday 3 May until Sunday 1 September 2019, 10.00 am to 6.00 pm (last orders for food is 5.30pm)

 The heat is on.….on the way, well let’s hope so!

Bennett’s Splash and the Splashside Café will very soon be open. After listening to feedback last year, we have decided the Splash Park will open a week earlier from Friday 3 May 2019 through to Sunday 1 September 2019.  

Come back and enjoy the 16 super soaking water features ranging from gentle mists, spray arches and tipping buckets to spray shooter cannons. The Splash Park is designed to be used and enjoyed by children aged from 2 years to 10 years, those older than this are asked to act responsibly for the safety of all.   

To make it a healthy splash please observe all the health and safety notices displayed around the splash park and café. 

Splashside Café adjacent to the splash park will be serving up all the favorites such as freshly prepared milkshakes, healthy fruit smoothies, delicious wraps and stone-baked pizzas. New to the menu this year will be the Bennett’s Burger, classic fish finger sandwiched and the Splashside Slushie.  Splashside Café also offers FREE WIFI, towel hire, seating areas inside and out, toilets, baby changing facilities and disability access.

It wouldn’t be an English summer without an ice cream and LM Ices will again be selling delicious ice creams from their vans.  

New this year– you’ll not only be able to splash in the park, but bounce too as Perfect Personalised Parties will be providing bouncy castles for you to enjoy (a small fee will apply).  

Those visiting are reminded that there are a number of parking restrictions in place on the roads surrounding Bennett Memorial Recreation Ground and it is strongly advised to park in Aston Square car park, off Bull Pond Lane, with its 387 spaces. This car park is only a minute’ walk to the park.  

Please look out for further updates of other events taking place in the park via our Council website, Facebook and Twitter pages.  

Bennett’s Splash and the Splashside Café will be open 7 days a week from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.
