Rockets - Magic - Giant Bubbles

Water Heritage Open Day at Lifetime Lab!

Lifetime Lab at the Old Waterworks will host a family fun Water Heritage Open Day on Saturday 18th August from 11am to 4pm. Admission is free and children and adults can enjoy a series of stands and activities.

Throughout the day visitors are encouraged to become environmental detectives while investigating interactive exhibits, discover the engineering trail around the old Victorian waterworks, participate in hands on experiments at the learning zone and experience birds of prey up close. Fun activities are planned for ages including creating giant bubbles, launching water rockets, hook a duck, face painting and lots more.

Lifetime Lab manager Mervyn Horgan said “Our 2010 open day was voted Best Interactive Event by the Heritage Council and this year we are aiming for best overall event” adding “We have had a great response from the public so far and expect a larger attendance this year, we have more volunteers and lots of extra family friendly fun planned with entry and all activities free on the day”

When asked about the weather spoiling the day Mervyn replied “The fun will happen inside as well as outdoors and we are fortunate to have our own marquee, so we are well prepared”

Lifetime Lab is located in the old Cork City Waterworks buildings on the Lee Road. The interactive Visitor Centre is open 7 days a week until 5.00pm with environmental exhibits, a steam centre, coffee dock, a picnic area and children’s playground to explore and is fully wheelchair accessible.
