Welcome! From bumps to teens we have it covered.
This is your one-stop site for everything you need to know about living in St Neots with children.

Huntingdonshire Child & Family Centre


Summer is here! I have so many activities listed on the site (and events constantly being added) that I decided to give you a selection of what you can do, there are so many exciting new places to try and some amzing upgrades with seasoned places. I have also used this article as an opportunity to share the changes to some of our beloved places such as Stanwick Lakes and more.


Riverside Park, near River Road, St. Neots FREE

A fantastic playground for all the ages with a big sand pit in the smaller kids area. If you’re not familiar with it, stand in the Riverside Car Park facing the playground. The sandy one is behind the trees so you may need to take a buggy for the little one and some food too.

Sacrewell Farm, Thornhaugh

They’ve built a huge play area and sand is found on half of it. The play area is great for toddlers and primary school kids too. Plus they have a lovely shaded stream area for paddling and crossing all the bridges or stepping stones.

Grafham Water (near the car park at Grafham’s Rutland Cycle hire PE28 0BH) FREE

They have a small play area on sand it isn’t in the shade but right next to it is a bouncy inflatable to jump all over which is partially in shade.

Stanwick Lakes FREE (parking £3.80 all day)

All the young kids play area was untouched by the fire and there has been some new additions too. There is lots of sand, buckets and spades are cheap to buy from the Shack (next to it), there is also the lovely water play area too and lots of shady trees to hide under.


Bancroft Recreation Ground, Hitchin

Hitchin's town centre 'buccaneer' themed splash park is 160m squared and includes features such as interactive water jets, tipping water buckets, a pirate ship and a play stream for younger children. On site Parking.

Avenue Splash Park. Boldock

The splash park at Avenue Park in Baldock has been resurfaced in 2020 and will hopefully be open to the public this summer. There are jets and sprinklers dotted around the splash pad and there is also a playground area next to it.

Open daily, seven days a week, from 10am to 6pm until the end of the summer. 

Howard Park and Gardens - Splash Park, Letchworth

At the centre of Letchworth's Howard Park is filled and the exciting water jets are operational from the beginning of May until September. It is a historic water feature, with ground level water jets. There is also a kiosk, public toilets and a baby changing facility. There is a green space for relaxation, picnics or family fun around the Park and Gardens.

Open 10am -6pm throughout the summer.

Splash Pad is in operation but please note the shallow paddle pool (on right edge of photo) will not be filled.

Splash n’ Play at Willen Lake, Milton Keynes

Southlake Aqua Park, Little Paxton

An inflatable obstacle course on a lake. 6 years plus (1.1m +), young children must be accompanied by an adult. Children will be required to wear a safety helmet and all participant must wear a buoyancy aid. You will have to book in advance to go but viewing is allowed if you are accompanying your family ie someone can watch whilst Dad tries to keep up with kids. haha.
