Activity Centre

Tuition, hire, fun with the family or just relaxation out on the water... This is the Place to be

We have wide and accessible range of equipment available for you to hire. From sailing, windsurfing and canoeing to family electric boats, pedal or rowing boats and zorbing there is something for everyone.

If you are looking for more than hire, then our professional team of instructors can provide you with a wide cross section of experiences from nationally recognised courses, introductory sessions to corporate, school and youth activity days.

If you have your own boat to launch at the park you can do this on the main watersports lake. Full day or evening (within 3 hours of closure) permits can be bought from the Watersports and Activity Centre. Buoyancy aids must be worn.

The Centre is open from mid February to early December. Sessions start from 11.00am and run throughout the day.
Please note that seasonal variations apply for daily opening and evening closure.

All of the Watersports equipment is hired out for specific session times during the busy periods. 
Advance booking is recommended and is possible by telephoning us on 0114 2471452 up to 6 days in advance.
