Waterpark in Milton Keynes?!

If you picture a waterpark, you probably picture a tropical, hot location abroad, with slides, rapids and, most importantly, sun! However, this image could be all set to change, as it looks like Milton Keynes could be becoming home to the UK's largest waterpark.

The proposed location is the National Bowl in Milton Keynes, which was built in 1937 and has attracted numerous artists to the open-air amphitheatre which has a capacity of 65,000. An investment company has proposed the UK's largest indoor waterpark, as well as a range of sports facilities and enhancements to help make the location into a major UK event venue.

The company will be holding a meeting with Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP) on March 30th. If the development goes ahead, it is likely to cost around £26m and create around 650 jobs.

An exciting tourist attraction if it does go ahead, adding to the collection of attractions popping up around Milton Keynes, and making it an even more desirable place to visit and live.

It's still early stages, but how do you feel about the idea of an indoor waterpark on your doorstep? Is it a great idea and something else to do with the kids and at the weekend, or does it take something away from the image you have of what a waterpark is and just not fit in Milton Keynes? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
