Water parks in South Wales
Water parks are what being on holiday is all about. Luckily for us, South Wales has plenty to choose from when it comes to splash-tastic water parks that can easily be reached from one of our Haven holiday parks.
It doesn't matter if you want to stay outdoors or be inside, enjoy a gentle wade in the pool or brave a monstrous flume, there’s a little bit of something for everyone. So, why not take a browse of this list of the best water parks in South Wales?
Haven's Kiln Park Holiday Park swimming pools
Address: Marsh Rd, Tenby SA70 7RB
Kiln Park has two wonderful pool options. There’s nothing better than cooling off or having a splash about in the Kiln Park outdoor swimming pool, complete with its slide and kids’ splash pool. Meanwhile, the indoor pool is a fantastic facility for those who enjoy a swim whatever the weather and is very popular with all ages. Guests of Haven's Penally Court and Lydstep Beach holiday parks are also free to use the facilities at Kiln Park, so don’t forget to bring your swimming gear because you really won’t want to miss out!
Wild Lakes Wales (Formerly Pembrokeshire Wake Park)
Address: Cott Ln, Martletwy, Narberth SA67 8AB
This family owned and run park is a purpose built inland watersports centre filled with adventure. Perfect for sunny and rainy days alike, you can immerse yourself in water-themed activities. From trying your hand at wake boarding or the ringo rides, to slipping and sliding your way across an inflatable obstacle course, there's plenty on offer.
Equally, if you don't fancy getting your feet wet, there are land-based activities such as the fantastic bouldering wall and kids corner and play area to keep the little ones entertained. If you should get peckish, there is also the highly-rated Tipi Dining where you can enjoy a gourmet bite to eat, or the Lakeside Cafe with a fresh menu for you to sample.
Aberavon Aqua Splash
Address: The Princess Margaret Way, Port Talbot SA12 7NX
With more than 30 water features including fountains, jets and ‘waterfalls’, Aberavon Aqua Splash is one of the best water parks in South Wales. The brand new splash park is excellent for families on sunny days; simply let the kids loose and watch as they slip and slide their way across the fun-filled playground, jumping from one stream to another. Once they get started, they won’t want to stop!
There are seating areas and facilities surrounding the site, so you can kick back and relax whilst the kids do the hard work. Please note that while the park is open daily in the summer, it is open air so your visit will always rely on the weather behaving itself!
Aqua Park Cardiff
Address: Bay Barrage, Cardiff, Penarth CF64 1TQ
The Aqua Park near Cardiff has claimed the accolade of being Wales’ biggest aqua park having been opened by a water sports enthusiast in 2016. The lake is a beautiful place to enjoy swimming in a natural environment while the aqua park itself is a huge inflatable structure on which you can slide, slip and splash to your heart’s content.
The course is continually being improved and is now equipped with climbing walls, trampolines, balance bars, slides, blast bags and monkey bars, making it the funnest day out you’re likely to have on a sunny day. Be aware that visitors must be able to swim 25 metres unaided, so you need to be strong and confident in the water to participate.
National Lido of Wales, Pontypridd
Address: Ynysangharad War Memorial Park, Pontypridd CF37 4PE
This wonderful lido outside of Cardiff is a real hidden gem. The water is the perfect temperature, it never gets too busy thanks to its out-of-the-way location, and there are plenty of delicious food and drink options to enjoy while taking in the good vibes. Music is always playing at the National Lido of Wales to get you in the mood for a swim in one of the two good sized pools. There is also a splash zone for the little ones, as well as sun loungers to relax on, indoor and outdoor changing rooms and an ample supply of showers.
