Other facilities available at the new look Country Park include cycle and Segway hire, a brand new 60 station community Gym with views over the Regatta Lake, a strength & conditioning Gym, newly refurbished accommodation, an 18 acre Campsite and newly refurbished conference and function rooms. 

Brian Taylor, Chairman of Holme Pierrepont Leisure Trust which manages the Holme Pierrepont Country Park on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council said, “We are thrilled that the improvements we have made so far in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council are having such a positive impact and that the changing of the name of the centre has been so well-received. We hope that with the introduction of the new Family Fun park, the over-all park itself continues to attract more local people and visitors from further afield as a family destination day out.”

Councillor John Knight, Culture Committee Chairman at Nottinghamshire County Council said, “The celebratory launch open weekend should be a great occasion to mark the latest exciting chapter for the National Water Sports Centre, as it also prepares for another busy summer season.”

Andrew Keen, Resorts Manager for the Holme Pierrepont Country Park said, “As the recently appointed Resort Manager of the newly named Holme Pierrepont Country Park, home of the National Water Sports Centre, I’m delighted to be part of the team.  My team and I aim to deliver consistent first class customer service and experiences at the park, so that our customers come back again and again.”
