A HAMPSHIRE water park is opening up giving people the rare chance to see marine life surrounded by beautiful gardens.

The Rotary Club of Chandler’s Ford and Itchen Valley has obtained permission to open up Longstock Park Water Gardens on Sunday, September 7.

These water gardens are rarely open to the general public but the club has managed to get it open from 2pm to 5pm with all proceeds going to the local Alzheimer’s Society.

The gardens, near Stockbridge, boast many sparkling lakes inhabited by water lilies and fish. 
Admission: adults £6, children £2. Free parking.
