The play zone can accommodate up to 15 children at a time, including features of a soft star fish, fishing boat and barrels for children aged two to five to enjoy.

Dean Cross, Waterside’s general manager, said: “We’re always trying to make Waterside a better place for our customers and following their feedback, we’ve added a free soft play area on the lower ground level.

“I think both parents and children will love our new play area and I can’t wait to see it in use.”
