The Maldon Splash Park was in 4th place attracting over 4,000 applications.

The Essex Big Weekend, which is organised by Visit Essex, on the 24th and 25th March, raises awareness of the fantastic attractions Essex has to offer and gives attractions the opportunity to reach new audiences.

Thousands of free tickets and/or an added value offers are donated by tourism businesses exclusively for local residents’.

Cllr Bob Boyce MBE, Chairman of Community Services said “The Essex Big Weekend is a great event and we were pleased to be part of it. The Beach Huts in Promenade Park are always popular and are a great way to spend a day, with plenty in the park for everyone. Maldon and the Saltmarsh Coast is a fantastic year round destination and we are looking forward to, what may be, our biggest summer yet. Visitors can find all the information they need at or popping in to one of our two Tourist Information Centres in Maldon and Burnham-on-Crouch.”
