Up to £15 million are being invested in the refurbishment of Sherwood Forest’s Subtropical Swimming Paradise in Nottinghamshire - which will bring new and improved toddler pools, additional raft rides and a children’s adventure cove to the popular water attraction. 

The waterpark’s transformation will begin this month and is set to take around two years to complete, but guests should fear not as the park will be kept open to the public during the project’s construction.

“It’s a very important area. If you were to ask anyone what is the real iconic facility at a Center Parcs holiday park, then the Subtropical Swimming Paradise would be top of the list”, said Center Parcs CEO Martin Dalby.

“Some families go and spend all day in there and these are the biggest indoor water parks in the UK.”

“We’re giving the whole swimming pool a big facelift, as well as adding some new rides.”

“In a couple of years’ time our guests will be able to enjoys some of the best rides around in our family area.”

This refurbishment forms part of a series of developments currently being carried out across all of Center Parcs’ resorts in order to commemorate their 30 year anniversary in the UK. Recent projects include the £3 million refurbishment of Aqua Sana last April, and Longleat Forest’s waterpark last August.

Visit Nottinghamshire’s Chief Executive, Brendan Moffett, said: “Center Parcs is well established as one of the most popular holiday destinations in Nottinghamshire, and this investment in improving its facilities will only serve to make it an even more appealing.”

“The recently refurbished Aqua Sana spa on-site at Center Parcs has attracted national interest, and the Subtropical Swimming Paradise improvements are sure to do the same.”
