Heralding the change of season, Great Yarmouth’s historic Waterways and Boating Lake is becoming awash with colour, as thousands of bulbs and plants awake from their winter slumber.

The grade II listed historic park, which was built between 1926-1928 has begun its annual bloom as temperatures start to rise.

This Easter, the 7-acre free-to-access Public Park is marking the occasion with a fortnight of free and low-cost community activities for locals and tourists to enjoy.

Ranging from a children’s Easter bunny trail, arts and crafts, garden tours, wellbeing walks and live weekend entertainment (weather permitting) at the attraction’s Island cafe.

For those feeling adventurous, rowing boats and pedalos have returned to the town’s only boating lake and are available to hire daily from 10am.

Lee Brown, Community Champion for the park commented,

“With the weather improving, it is great to see many more people enjoying this unique site. Our gardeners and team have been busy over the winter caring for the grounds, redecorating the café and refreshing the menu. We’ll be unveiling some exciting plans for this summer very soon including the return of Great Yarmouth’s mascot race.”
