A huge adventure water park is set to open at a quarry in West Lothian.
Cable wakeboarding, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming and a unique ‘Aqua Chimp’ floating rope course will be part of the attraction at Wild Shore, which will sit at Daisy Park.
The company, which already operates parks in Dundee, Delamere, Liverpool, and New Brighton, is currently building the unique new feature at the historic brickworks and quarry in Winchburgh.
Opening for the park is scheduled for 2024 and is due to create up to 15 part-time and three full-time jobs, plus more in construction.
The project, which involves a seven-figure investment, is being constructed by Wild Shore and Winchburgh Developments Ltd, with the next step being to submit plans to West Lothian Council.
Callum Mark, director, Wild Shore, said: “We are delighted to announce our plans to create a brand-new site at Winchburgh, in the heart of an exciting and growing community.
“Wild Shore will bring its unique brand of water-based adventure activities and five star customer service to Daisy Park.
“We look forward to working with the schools and community alongside Winchburgh Developments over the next couple of years as the park is developed into an exciting and diverse space for all to enjoy.
“We pride ourselves in being able to deliver water activities to all within a safe and managed water environment, along with encouraging many more people to enjoy outdoor swimming in a safe way”.
John Hamilton, chief executive, Winchburgh Developments Ltd, commented: “This is a huge development for the area and will help put West Lothian on the map as one of the most exciting visitor destinations in Scotland.
“Wild Shore is a well-respected outdoor adventure company and have got an excellent track record of creating spaces that capture the imagination.
“We’re very pleased to have a partner like them on board to bring new life to the former quarry.”
