The Old Waterworks Experience will host a family fun Water Heritage Open Day on Sunday 27th August from 11am to 4pm. Admission is free and children and adults can enjoy a series of stands and activities themed on the various aspects of water.
Throughout the day visitors are encouraged to become detectives while investigating interactive exhibits, discover the engineering trail around the old Victorian waterworks, participate in hands on experiments at the learning zone and experience industrial heritage up close. Fun activities are planned for ages including creating giant bubbles, launching water rockets, hook a duck, face painting and lots more.
Old Cork Waterworks Experience manager Mervyn Horgan said “Our open day was previously voted Best Interactive Event by the Heritage Council and this year we are aiming for an even bigger event” adding “We have had a great response from the public so far and expect a larger attendance this year, we have more volunteers and lots of extra family friendly fun planned with entry and all activities free on the day”
The Old Cork Waterworks is located on the Lee Road. The recently renovated visitor experience is open 7 days a week until 5.00pm and includes a coffee dock, a picnic area and children’s playground to explore and is fully wheelchair accessible.
