A popular water attraction in Peterborough is to re-open to the public in time for the school summer holidays.

Peterborough City Council says it is pleased to announce that Bretton Water Park will be reopening on Saturday, July 22, following essential repairs.

The facility, renowned for offering refreshing activity during the summer months, has been closed following an arson attack at the site in 2021.

The news comes after the recent re-opening of the paddling pool in Central Park following successful repair work.

Councillor Steve Allen, deputy leader and cabinet member for housing and communities, said: "We are excited to announce our plans to re-open Bretton Water Park for the school summer holidays this year.

“Our teams have been working hard to prepare the site for re-opening and we are confident that families and visitors will once again enjoy the fantastic experiences that the facility has to offer. We would also thank the public, for their patience and understanding during the closure.”

Bretton Water Park will be open Tuesday to Sunday every week and closed on Mondays.
