Liverpool City Council has approved plans for an inflatable water obstacle course in Liverpool’s docks.

The water park is set to open on 1st May. It will stay open until 31 October 2018. It will feature include inflatable obstacles floating in Dukes Dock.

The site will be managed by Liverpool Water Park LTD. BBC News reports that the company said they will work with the management of the nearby Albert Dock to keep it safe. That comes after some residents expressed concern that people may try to access the site while it’s closed.

There will also be shipping containers  on the dock. They will be used to house an office and wetsuit storage. There will also be beach hut-style changing pods.

If this initial season is successful, the park could open in future years.

The area is within Liverpool’s World Heritage Site. The walls of the dock are listed.
