Almost 2,000 back plans for water play park

Almost 2,000 people have shown their support for potential plans to build a water play park in Douglas.

Douglas Councillor Claire Wells posted the suggestion on her Facebook page asking those who were keen to see such a facility in the town to like the post.

The message has received 1,800 likes in less than two days, with many also commenting in support of the idea.

There are currently no firm plans to build such a park, but the Council is yet to set its budget for this year.
