It’s free and it’s beautiful with the right weather. There plenty of shadow places where you can sit and relax. Everything was clean and they had big restroom and shower . Maybe a good quick stop for refreshing campers .

Great day out to just either swim, have a BBQ, see friends, or just do some chillaxing. For a free water park, it's definately a great day out for young or old, families or couples.

Spent yesterday afternoon at Bluewater Lagoon, really lovely place, several pools, a couple perfect for children and families, and a good size adult pool. Water clean and sparkling, plenty of shade and very relaxing.

Always green. Great fun for the little ones in the splash zone and the older kids and adults in the larger pools. Also, has a gated play area for the smaller ones. Cafe is fantastic. Love the Pancakes!

Yes, but check the opening hours before going there as sometimes they are closed, give them a call.
