Summer holiday fun with splash pad at Dartmouth Park

The splash pad in Dartmouth Park, West Bromwich, has opened for children to enjoy over the school summer holidays.

The area features brightly coloured flooring containing sprinklers, waterwheels, fountains and water channels.

The splash pad is aimed at four to 14-year-olds and is free to use.

It’s open from around 10am to 6pm every day for the rest of the summer holidays.

The splash pad reopened today (Friday 26 July) following some essential maintenance and minor repairs.

Councillor Maria Crompton, cabinet member with responsibility for parks, said: “I am so pleased the splash pad is back open. I think it’s fantastic and will provide hours of fun and enjoyment for children throughout the holidays.

“This adds to the existing range of excellent facilities on offer at the park and adjoining Sandwell Valley, both of which received the prestigious Green Flag Award again this year from Keep Britain Tidy.

“I hope children and their families will get a lot of enjoyment from it.”

The splash pad was jointly funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Sandwell Council.
