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.

The children's centre was set up as part of a Government initiative to offer 'service hubs' for under-fives and their families. It is the Government's vision that every community in the country will be served by a children's centre by next year.
