Kingcombe Splash back into 2018!

The construction is almost complete at our latest splash park in Gadebridge Park, Hemel Hempstead.  The large interactive water play design includes 55 in-ground water features, including the new Glow Domes supplied by our American partner Water Odyssey™ and 57 individual spotlights.

The park is home to a roman villa first uncovered in the 1960’s, (http://www.dacorumheritage.org.uk/article/the-gadebridge-roman-villa) so great care had to be taken in early stages of the project, with an archaeologist  being present on site during the excavation phase. There was no discovery of further artefacts or buildings, so work has proceeded smoothly.

Inspired by the Roman heritage, an amphitheatre surrounds the top play area, this includes a power supply so that the space can be used as an event zone when the splash park is not in use. The glow domes and lights also mean that opportunities are endless for a variety of evening uses.

We are very excited to see the finished article, with the grand  opening scheduled for May.
