Our Response to Water Park Charges

Collated response of local parents to the £1 per person charge to be introduced at the Water Park, Knightstone Road, WsM – from the Weston-super-Mum discussion Water Park Charge

The majority of parents would not mind paying a £1 per person charge to enter the Water Park, as long as facilities were improved at the site.

The general consensus is that a permanent toilet block is a priority and this is the main source of concern amongst parents. The Town Council should also consider offering a nappy-changing area.

That the Water Park is clean and safe is paramount for all families who enter. If the charge helps to deter older, unaccompanied children from using the Park, then it is a good thing.

Though most who responded to the discussion understand the need to charge for entry, a flat £1 per person might preclude larger families from using the Water Park, which has become a much valued resource since opening in 2010.

The fear was expressed that once an entry fee has been introduced then it might continue to rise.

Points for consideration:

· A reduced rate for residents, a season ticket or a discount scheme.

· An unlimited day pass that permits re-entry
