The Splash Park at Happy Mount Park is a popular place for families and children to visit.

On their Facebook page they announced: "Unfortunately the Splash Park in Happy Mount Park will remain closed this summer as Lancaster City Council continues to prioritise supporting the district’s most vulnerable residents through the coronavirus pandemic.

"With many council staff still redeployed in other departments and with the time and work required to commission the system, repair the surface and recruit staff, it is not feasible to be able to do this before the end of summer.

"The Splash Park will therefore remain closed until May 2021.

"We realise this will cause some disappointment but we look forward to seeing you again next year!"
