Fun in the Water
One of the most used and enjoyed aspects of Haringey’s parks over the summer months are the paddling pools and water play facilities. Free to enjoy, these provide kids with hours of fun and entertainment for splashing around and cooling down on long, hot, summer days.
Three of Haringey’s parks have paddling pools:
There is also a water play facility in the main playground in Finsbury Park which allows children to run through and splash in water that’s squirted out through jets from the ground.
Facilities are open between May and September on the weekends only, except during summer holidays when they will be open 7 days a week - weather permitting. If there are any changes to these planned dates they will appear on this page.
The paddling pools are generally emptied and cleaned in the evening twice a week, and then refilled early the next morning. They are checked daily and chlorine added where necessary.
Children up to the age of 8 years can play in the paddling pools and water play feature and parental supervision is necessary at all times. Other rules and restrictions will apply and are detailed at individual sites.
