The paddling pool at Ravenscourt Park and the splash pad at Bishops Park in Fulham are now open for the summer season.

The Ravenscourt Park facility had been closed until the beginning of the month due to the need to carry out repair work.

Families can now access the 13-hectare open space which also features play areas, sports facilities and a nearby garden centre with a cafe.

There is no charge to use the paddling pool but you need to book a 90 minute slot before admission.

Meanwhile in Fulham, residents have been enjoying the Bishops Park splash pad since reopening five weeks ago.

Complete with three sets of water jets and a long sandy beach area, the large splash pad is located in the middle of the park between the lake and the skate bowl.

It is open from 10am to 6pm every day.
