The Boathouse at Thompson Park has officially opened for the spring/summer season and invites residents and visitors for a splashing good time.

The facility, which offers a great opportunity for visitors of all ages to try different water activities, has opened over the weekend and is expecting an even bigger wave of visitors than last year.

Managed by Burnley Leisure the Boathouse has a wide range of equipment to choose from including rowing boats, Canadian canoes, and sit-on-top kayaks, which don’t require any previous experience to be able to use them.

As well as paddling around the lake, people can also sit down and enjoy ice cream and fresh coffee from the Boathouse café.

Claire Newton, Burnley Leisure’s project activator, said: “The Boathouse provides a fantastic opportunity to get involved in water sports without even having any previous experience.

“Our staff members are always on site to offer help and training to those who might need it.

“I’d like to encourage everyone to visit the park, have a splash about and enjoy all of the great things the park has to offer including the children’s play area, a paddling pool, and a miniature railway.”

The facility is open on weekends and bank holidays between 11am and 5pm. During school holidays, it is open seven days a week.
