Sheffield’s much-loved Rivelin Splash is set to reopen on Wednesday (July 28).
And fans of the colourful outdoor paddling pools, tucked away in Rivelin Valley, have expressed delight at their reopening.
The three adjoining pools, in Rivelin Valley Park, include jets, sprinklers, bucket drops and water tables which are ideal for outdoor play on a warm day.

Adjacent Rivelin Park Cafe announced the pools, revamped in 2013 and free to use, would be opening on Wednesday to the delight of residents.
Malcolm replied: “Been too long. Glad to see it great again. I used to go many years ago as a kid…”
Ayden commented: “Think kids would love this when [the] weather picks back up?”
But some joked about the timing as thunderstorms and rain are forecast for Wednesday after a two-week heatwave.
