Oakwood Theme Park, Pembrokeshire, has announced plans for a £4m investment programme to create a major new family park area to open before the 2013 summer holidays.
Set in 80 acres of countryside, Oakwood is Wales’ biggest family adventure park. Full details of the project will be announced early in 2013, but the new family park area will feature seven new rides and attractions including a spectacular water ride and a series of children’s play areas and other themed attractions. In addition, the development will include a family friendly restaurant and café alongside outdoor play areas and themed retail experiences.
Park Director Dominic Jones said, “This represents by far the largest investment at the park for more than a decade and is a direct response to visitor feedback we have received.
“As well as creating a must-see new destination for families, the development also represents a major boost for the local economy and will create a number of new jobs.
“It will totally transform the visitor experience and provide a magical new series of attractions aimed specifically at the family market.
“As part of the investment we are also creating family-friendly facilities within the themed area as well as baby-changing facilities, high chairs and microwaves.
“This will be the largest new attraction of its kind in Wales and is the first phase in an ambitious and ongoing programme of investment over the coming years.”
