The splash pad. I don't suppose it will be open for a while yet.

But it looks pretty and colorful like this!
Bill Phillips: It does but when it is full of kids running around getting very wet it really comes into its own!

Splash pad?? What is the function of this strange thing?
Bill Phillips: It is what it says. Jets of water and showers make this a great wet play area for children in the summer.
Coussin d'éclaboussure ? ..un bassin qui fontaine ?
Surprenant

The open splash pad must be wonderful. A place for children!
Bill Phillips: It is great. I had hoped that the boys might use it this year although I am not sure how Joseph would react
you have captured a cheerful and upbeat image, despite no people around, Bill.
Bill Phillips: When it is working it is packed with children and I probably would not dare to take pictures!

More Councils should provide the sort of thing, Bill. Shows how good Droitwich is!
Bill Phillips: This is actually Worcester Lisl. The park just around the corner from where Helen lives

I have not heard of this sort of thing.
Bill Phillips: The younger of your grandchildren would love it is imagine Chad
Today they announced one opening the third week of June.
Bill Phillips: I can't see this reopening before July

I am not sure that I can get my head around these wide eyed images … It's possibly an age thing. Do not dare say 'Yes it is'.
Bill Phillips: Anything wider than the equivalent of 50mm in full frame is a wider angle of view than that of the human eye. We simply could not see this if we stood where I was and didn't move our heads.
I bet the kids love this, it might be a while before they can play their again.
Bill Phillips: I can't see it being back in use for a while sadly

I bet the kids would love this in the present hot weather; a few adults, too.
Bill Phillips: I know, it is a shame. No doubt when they do decide to turn it on it will go cold and rain
you are having fun with your fish eye lens Bill....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It is great fun to use Peter. I keep it permanently on my XE2 which I have set to all things manual as it is a manual lens so it is easier to do that than to have to change the settings on another camera.

hmm, i don't understand what it is
Bill Phillips: Basically it is a water playground. Jets of water come from below and that steel pipe thing is basically a shower. The kids love it, but not at the moment sadly!
