An outdoor inflatable fun park is coming to Bolton next month at a farm for the holidays.

From April, young people all over the borough will be able to try out the bouncy castles, funfair and beach play area at Umberton Farm in Over Hulton.

The family business will offer something for young people to do while off on school holidays and will only be open during term holiday weeks.

Owner Leighton Mills said: “We have got a big piece of land to utilise, and we wanted to give back to the community.

The Bolton News:

“We looked at different things that we could do for children and thought this was the best thing we could do.

“There will be bouncy castles, obstacle courses and beach play areas complete with sand pits.”

The fully outdoor fun park will be open during holiday hours and promises to be cost effective.

Leighton said: “It’s better than children being stuck inside and especially in summer when you want to be outdoors.

“Of course it’s weather dependent but some people don’t mind the rain as long as it’s not cold.

“It won’t be open all the time so when it does, people will be excited for it to open.

“And I don’t know anything else like this happening in the area, so this is a new thing we are offering people in Bolton.”

The Bolton News:

The farm is owned by Leighton’s dad, Darren Mills, who will also be taking care of the new bounce park along with the rest of the family helping out.

Leighton said: “People will be able to take in the stunning views as well as they jump around and just enjoy it.

“It’s a farm adventure for all of us including my wife, Sarah Mills and my dad’s wife, Paula Mills.

“I think I’d rather my kids be outdoors doing something like this than on their iPads all day and it gives them something fun to do.

“There just isn’t much to do around Bolton for kids and we need to get more of them outdoors and enjoying nature.

“This is what my kids like too and I’m confident other kids will like it.”
