PLANS for a huge adventure water park have been submitted to West Lothian Council.

Daisy Park, which is part of the overall plan for the Winchburgh site adjacent to the Union Canal, will see a new water park alongside a wild learning garden and viewing points across the Forth bridges.

The area will also welcome new footpaths and cycle paths connected to Union Canal.

Wild Shore – which already operates in Dundee, Delamere (Cheshire), Liverpool and New Brighton – will develop a new facility within the park and create a major water-based visitor attraction.

The park will become home to water adventure activities including cable wakeboarding, stand-up paddle boarding, swimming and for the first time in Scotland – their unique floating ropes course over water – Aqua Chimp.

"The community consultation has been an invaluable exercise in gaining a unique insight into the village’s history, exciting future and the strong community driving expansion and change.

"We have been blown away by the support the project has received and can’t wait to start working with local schools, youth groups, voluntary organisations and the wider community to create a truly special facility for Winchburgh and beyond.

"Wild Shore Winchburgh will manage the quarry water under a 30-year agreement with Winchburgh Developments.

"It will be easily accessible within one hour for more than half of the Scottish population, especially with a new junction connecting local roads with the M9 expected to be completed early next year.”

John Hamilton, chief executive of Winchburgh Developments Ltd, said: “This isn’t just another new park for the community.

"Its design has been significantly influenced by the community too. The plans have been subject to extensive consultation and the proposals that are going in for approval reflect the feedback that we had from many Winchburgh residents.

"Some of the locals still remember the brickworks when it was operational and we know many of them are looking forward to seeing the old industrial site take on a new lease of life.”
