THE revamped Grafham Water visitor centre was opened last week along with a new wild life friendly garden.
The £130,000 re-fit of the Anglian Water building was opened on Thursday (April 25) and includes lots of information to help visitors understand the importance of using water wisely as well as a new water neutral garden, herb garden and wildlife area which have been planted nearby.
Both the garden and willow sculptures were created by teams from the LEAP Centre (Learn-Explore-Aspire-Progress), which supports adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, at Huntingdonshire Regional College.
Anglian Water’s park manager at Grafham Water Angela Tarry said: “With the summer season just around the corner and the weather finally picking up it’s great to have the new visitor centre ready to welcome visitors.
“We started this £130,000 investment at the beginning of the year to update the centre with lots of interesting displays and make sure Grafham Water remains a fantastic place to visit.”

The centre was officially opened on Anglian Water managing director Peter Simpson along teams who helped create the water neutral gardens.
Mrs Tarry added: “There are loads of activities for people at all of our water parks, especially Grafham. The reservoir’s shores are popular with walkers, runners and cyclists as well as sailors and fishermen out on the water itself – we hope the revamped visitor centre will add to Grafham’s appeal as a great family day out.”
