Saturday's sunshine tempted hundreds of people out to the new facility, based at De Havilland Primary School in Hatfield.
Activities included art workshops, go-karts, caterpillar music and a display by the newly-formed De Havilland Jets cheerleading group.
The opening ceremony was conducted by county councillor Jane Pitman, lead member for children's services, and Welwyn Hatfield mayor Michael Long.
