Douglas water park plans make a splash

Council considering installation at Noble's Park

A Douglas councilor's summery suggestion for the town has prompted a wave of feedback online.

Claire Wells took to social media last night to gauge support for a water play area in Noble's Park.

The facility, designed for children to enjoy during the sunnier months, is being considered again by the authority - having been overlooked in previous years due to cost.

Many proponents pointed out the merits of a similar installation in Mooragh Park, Ramsey, which attracts many visitors during the peak season.

Ms Wells' post attracted well over a thousand 'likes' and hundreds of comments overnight, with the overwhelming majority firmly in favour of the Council's plans.
