Water Park Bedford

Box End Park is centred on two purpose-built watersports lakes that provide safe, high-quality water sports activities for people of all ages and abilities. Children as young as six years old may enjoy discovering and conquering our incredible Aqua Park floating playground.

Why should I go to Box End Park?

On the cable tow lake, you may learn to water ski and wakeboard, or you can practise during our specialised open water swim sessions! Explore the northern lake on a stand up paddleboard for a more peaceful experience!

 

Aqua Park at Box End

The incredible giant-sized Aqua Park is open from spring through October. The park is the largest and greatest in the vicinity, and it features the largest water super slide in the UK! Every year, they introduce new challenges, so be sure to check back to see what’s new!

For kids 6 and above, you will have the opportunity to leap, climb, and swing your way through the many obstacles! Ideal for families, birthday parties, schools, and adult gatherings!

 

Towing with a Cable

Whatever your skill level, you will be greeted with a welcoming smile on our dock, where we will work with you to improve your riding and ensure you have a fantastic day! We offer introductory classes called ‘taster sessions,’ which include all of the necessary equipment and instruction, so make your reservation now!
