Embankment splash park visitor questionnaire

Over the last 10 years the splash park has been a successful addition to this attractive area of Wellingborough. We would like to know what you enjoy most about the facility and what improvements you feel the area might need. The council has limited budgets and wants to make sure we are giving priority to the things that local people want most.

A visitor survey was carried out during the Summer 2015 and the results of this survey can be viewed here.
