It's a hot sunny day, and you want to cool off - well, what better way to do it than at Hays Aquatic Park!
You can take on the two very challenging slides, and try and navigate them down to the water below, or for the less adventurous, you can enjoy the "lazy river" which meanders through the park, where you can lie back and relax in your tube and watch those around you splash and play.
For those kids who have had lessons and want to practice their strokes, there is a competition pool (you can imagine yourself at the Olympics as you swim!), or a leisure pool for some light swimming or just splashing around in. The competition pool comes with diving boards so you can even try our your new moves!
If you fancy a sunbathe, there is an upper deck bathing area, and shaded lounging stations for those who want to keep out of the sun.
The complex also has lots of really fun play features that kids can enjoy!
If you do fancy getting better at your strokes, they offer swim lessons, or if you would rather just bring all your friends and celebrate your birthday you can do that too!
Occasionally throughout the season they hold events, such as "Dash 4 Disabilities" and "Blues, BBQ & Bargains Family Special" which are great for the whole family to come out and enjoy some time together with a fun theme.

They do have lockers but they don't lock, so best to leave valuables in the car.
If all that swimming has made those tummies rumble, there is a concession stand that offers lots of different yummies including pizza, popcorn, chip & cheese, soda, slushes, and candy.
Just speak to staff if they have any questions about accessibility!
