The play area also features treetop towers, roundabouts, seesaws, wetpour tunnels, firefighters pole, rockers, springers and bucket and rope swings.

Councillor Bhupinder Gakhal, cabinet member for resident services at Wolverhampton Council, said: “Tettenhall Pool is hugely popular during the warmer weather and we’ve been getting it ready for plenty of summer fun.

“The water splash play at East Park is a fabulous addition to our city and was enjoyed by hundreds of local children after it opened last year.

“We are hoping for some warm days so children and families can make the most of splashing. I’d like to remind people of the importance of wearing hats and sunscreen while enjoying the city’s water attractions – and do make sure you wear suitable clothes and shoes."

Councillor Gakhal also reminded people to be "considerate to residents" when using the water facilities and take litter away with them.

He added: "Remember, if you are bringing your dog, please make sure they are kept under control, on a lead and out of the water."
