North Yorkshire Water Park


Have fun, get fit and relax on one of the largest natural watersport lakes in North Yorkshire! Nestled in picturesque countryside, 6 miles from Scarborough, North Yorkshire Water Park spans 250 hectares and offers a range of fun filled activities suitable for the whole family!

Create unforgettable adventures and experience the thrills of Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, Open Water Swimming and our Pedalos available 7 days a week. Whether you are looking to develop your watersport skills, challenge yourself to learn something new, or simply want to take in the beautiful lakeside views, there’s an activity to suit everyone!

Take a jog, cycle or a leisurely stroll along our new 2.5km all-terrain gravelled track with views of the natural landscape, or hop on a pedalo to enjoy the views from the water! The Water Park is dog friendly, but make sure to keep them on a lead so wildlife and nesting birds aren’t disturbed.

Our café is open for takeaway hot and cold drinks and delicious cold snacks. The Water Park has three well stocked lakes, with specialist trout, predator and coarse lakes to choose from, within a short walk of the leisure lake. Find out more about fishing here.

Advanced booking for the majority of our watersports is essential and available on our website. Book now!

Health & Safety 
Following social distancing guidelines, the Water Park reopened in June with health and safety measures in place. The Water Park is operating a one way system on land and hand sanitiser is readily available. Changing rooms and showers are temporarily closed and there are limited toilets. 

Inflatable AquaPark
Please note our inflatable AquaPark will remain closed for 2020. This is due to social distancing and health & safety guidelines significantly impacting the customer experience. We do hope to be back for a fun filled 2021 season!
