Located just East of Wykeham, 6 miles west of Scarborough, North Yorkshire Water Park originally comprised of four specialist fishing lakes and a larger lake (c80 acres) which is now dedicated to water sports. For many years, local water sports clubs and individuals have been sailing, windsurfing, model yacht racing and open water swimming at the destination.

North Yorkshire Water Park was launched in July 2017 with an AquaPark. Thrill seekers now enjoy further activities such kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, tandem kayaking and more, as well as a range of other outdoor leisure facilities around the lake. 2021 has seen the Dawnay Estate substantially expand the Water Park providing new attractions such as wake boarding and the new 70-seat café building and events room.

The Café @ North Yorkshire Water Park is open every day, serving delicious food and refreshments to leave you refuelled and recharged after an action-packed session of thrilling adventures.


Make a splash on the two showstopping inflatable waterparks – try the newly refurbished ‘Wipeout’ course, which has four new exhilarating and challenging obstacles to put you to the test, from an extended lateral-climbing obstacle course to an audacious anvil-shaped jumping platform. The popular ‘Warrior’ course will provide endless fun with its giant slides, climbing walls and more, allowing you to race against your friends to conquer the obstacle course in record time.

For those who are interested in trying out new water sports, North Yorkshire Water Park offers kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding and wakeboarding, where you can have lessons with instructors.
