Anglian Water to close water parks to limit spread of coronavirus

22 March 2020


Jake Williams, Head of Parks and Conservation at Anglian Water, said: “We’ve sadly made the decision to close all of our water parks to the public along with all activities with immediate effect to help limit the spread of coronavirus. None of our car parks will be open and all tracks and gates are closed. Public access will not be permitted in any areas.


“We had hoped to keep our green spaces open, but the wellbeing and safety of our customers, visitors and colleagues is the most important thing at this time.


“All events at our parks will be cancelled until the end of June and the Anglian Water Music Festival will be postponed until next year. We will be reviewing this on a three-month basis as current advice is updated.


“We understand customers have a wide range of products, permits, memberships and annual passes with us that cover a range of activities. Finding a solution to managing these product issues on such a large scale isn't something we have done before and we want to ensure any changes and refunds can be processed as easily as possible. We will be in touch with you as soon as we can with further details.


“We would encourage everybody to follow the Government’s advice to social distance and not travel wherever possible to protect the most vulnerable in our communities."
