The entire park is located in the water, eg the towers and anchors are all in the water, there is no intrusion onto the sides of the docks and nothing is fixed or attached to the dock walls. The dock we use is surrounded by houses and flats and we do not have any problems with noise or local residents, etc. Some of the houses are less than 30m from the wake park. The wake park is a perfect example of how we can fit into an urban environment with minimal effect on local residents.
We work closely with Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Sport and many other local stakeholders to develop the park and get local people out on the water. The park is open 12 months of the year and is especially busy at weekends and evenings. The customer base is extremely diverse and includes a wide age demographic from 8 years old to over 60! Weekly users include students, kids, tradesman, young professionals, a good mix of both genders and all sorts of groups, particularly Stag and Hen do parties at weekends
