Summer is just around the corner and it is looking likely that staycation is the trend of 2021 with the coronavirus not going anywhere fast. But fear not, we’ve got the perfect anecdote for families this summer, popular attraction North Yorkshire Water Park has announced huge investment plans in 2021.
The popular water sports facility is adding an all-new wakeboarding park to their leisure offering. This includes kickers, rails and other things that allow visitors to expand their skill set with the help of instructors.
Also, there will be a new cafe and decking area where spectators can enjoy the lake attractions. The water park is near Scarborough and also offers kayaking, an AquaPark, paddle boarding, open-water swimming, pedalos, land-based outdoor pursuits around the lakes and summer camping – as well as separate fishing lakes for expert and leisure fishing.
The new facilities are due to be completed in May 2021 just in time for summer. Due to the new additions, the North Yorkshire Water Park will also be adding to its events calendar and aquatic activities.
David Steel, chief executive of Dawnay Estates which owns the attraction, said: “It’s an extremely exciting time for the Water Park as we expand our facilities and what we have to offer ready for the summer season.
“Offering wakeboarding will complement our fantastic range of outdoor water pursuits as ‘adventure awaits’ for our guests at the ‘New North Yorkshire Water Park’, when we are able to welcome them again as lockdown eases.
“Ultimately, this new development is a huge opportunity for us to cement our new and improved offering and contribute to the leisure and tourist offer in North Yorkshire.
