Forget the Costa del Sol or even the French Riviera - Woodhall Spa was the hot spot for sun-lovers and swimmers this summer.
Management at the parish council owned Jubilee Park complex are celebrating a bumper summer season.
Councillors have heard there was a 40 per cent increase in both income and the number of visitors to the park’s outdoor swimming pool.
And, it appears sun-loungers were particularly popular with an 85 per cent increase in demand.
Park manager Joe Stanhope said: “It’s been amazing - a brilliant year.”
Final statistics are still being drawn up, but Mr Stanhope said the number of visitors was “unprecedented”. The revenue had exceeded budgets for every month of the season.
He added: “There was an incredible demand for sun-loungers. I just wish I’d had 100 more.”
Mr Stanhope also confirmed income from the park’s caravan site had been better than expected.
He said a newly refurbished shower block had proved popular. He confirmed additional work would be carried out on the block during the winter to correct some “minor faults.”
Jubilee Park is currently owned by the parish council although negotiations are close to being completed with a new charitable organisation who will take control.
Details have been announced about two on-going projects at the park.
A £5,000 scheme is underway to recreate a historic rose garden. On November 2, people can ‘dig up’ existing roses and make a donation which will go towards new plants.
On the same day, people are also being invited to help plant new trees.
