Mr White sold the park and the lodge with the permission to make the place into a holiday park to the Clarke family. The family created a ten year plan where they would endeavour to change the park into a leisure facility. This may have sounded easy, but the park had been left in rather a mess, the ground was covered in humps and bumps everywhere, so parts of the park had to be smoothed out before any type of leisure facility could be installed.
Around this time the first few static caravans, tourers and camping pitches arrived and the park started to become like the park we know today. As the park had lots of lakes, a water skiing club formed and grew into a regular group. The park became renowned for the shows they put on and there were long queues for speed boat rides around the lake.
At this time people on foot could enter the park for free and cars were charged. The only charged activity at the time was the swimming pool. More and more jobs became available as the park grew.
The Clark family then made the lodge into a hotel, creating even more jobs.
