CHILDREN dived right in at the official opening of a refurbished play area.

Slides, tunnels and climbing frames are among the new facilities on offer at Hatfield Water Park.

Youngsters from Small World Day Nursery joined civic mayor Coun Ken Knight at the official unveiling.

The new look park is painted in bright, sunny colours and the new design fits in with the larger elements on site such as the climbing tower and low ropes course.

An A-frame has also been fitted in the public footpath entrance near the park to allow pushchair access from the adjacent fields and lanes.

The original park was fitted about 15 years ago as an activity area for children aged eight and under.
