Elected Mayor of Watford, Dorothy Thornhill, said: “The new pools and hub are absolutely amazing, they’ll be free for everyone to use and fully accessible. Watford’s paddling pools are one of our iconic features that generations of people who have grown up here know and love. Our investment, along with the Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery funding, has transformed them into an exciting water play and splash area for families to enjoy for years to come. Our new hub will provide a meeting place for the whole community – and Daisy’s in the Park café will have lots of tasty treats. You couldn’t ask for a better day out.”

Visitors will be able to use the car park in Gade Avenue for up to six hours.  Just make sure you pick up a ticket at the newly installed machine. For the opening day, the car park will be busy. However, there are many car parks close to the Town Hall that visitors can use before walking to the park.For the full list, visit our car parks web page.

Here's what the hub looks like now:
