The owner of Clacton Pavilion has revealed that it’s brand-new water park is on course to open at Easter this month.
Billy Peak said that work on the forthcoming attraction, which will be part of the amusement park’s new outdoor family area, is almost entirely complete, with the Easter bank holiday pencilled in for its launch
A £100,000 pumping and filtration unit that ensures water safety has been installed underneath the park, with the finishing design touches the only task remaining.
Peak told Essex Live: “This has been a long time in the planning and it is pleasing for us to be where we want to be.
“Construction of the bulk of water park is coming to an end and it’s basically now just the decoration work – the scenery, fencing, beach hut background, as well as the toilets and kiosk.
“It’s an ongoing part of what we are doing here, obviously aimed at enhancing our own business.
But at the same time, it will hopefully be another attraction for Clacton.
“We have now got four miles of fantastic beach in Clacton – without doubt, the best in Essex. What we have done, and what the pier has done, has built on that.”
Aimed at under-12s, the tropical island-themed Pavilion Water Park will feature small water slides and water cannons, as well as a cafe, sun deck and beach hut- themed changing rooms.
Peak has even imported bamboo fencing from Taiwan to help create a tropical, Hawaiian aesthetic.
