North Yorkshire Water Park is expanding its offering ahead of the predicted staycation boom this summer.
Launched in 2017, the Scarborough attraction offers a range of water sports including kayaking, the AquaPark, paddle boarding, open-water swimming and pedalos. Camping is available throughout the summer and the water park also has separate fishing lakes.
The investment will see a new wake boarding line added to the park’s current leisure offering, along with kickers and rails, allowing visitors to expand their skills with instructors.
New lakeside buildings will introduce a café and decking viewing area, which will become the base for customers arriving at the park to use both the fishing and water park amenities.
In addition, new infrastructure and signage will further improve customer experience at the venue.
North Yorkshire Water Park will also expand its calendar of events and aquatic activities.
“It’s an extremely exciting time for the Water Park as we expand our facilities and what we have to offer ready for the summer season. This new development is a huge opportunity for us to cement our new and improved offering and contribute to the leisure and tourist offer in North Yorkshire,” said David Steel, chief executive of Dawnay Estates, which owns North Yorkshire Water Park.
The new facilities are due to complete in May.
