New Water Splash Park In Time For Next Summer At Sutherland Leisure Centre
By: Alex Harmon, ellaslist
They may have the beaches but this area has been crying out for a water play park for kids to enjoy. Well, the Shire only has to wait until next summer. A new $1.5 million water fun park will be installed at Sutherland Leisure Centre is expected to be ready by December.
Sutherland Shire Council told the Leader that the water park would be “a dynamic mix of slides and fountains to suit a range of ages and abilities”.
“It will be supervised by a lifeguard and is expected to be ready for the 2018/2019 summer season.
“Access to the new Water Fun Park will be included in the Leisure Centre’s standard entry fee with a discounted family rate of $25.50.
“The water fun park is also expected to be self-sustaining in its building and running costs, due to the anticipated increase in patrons this unique space will bring.”
The water park, covering 500 square metres, will be built on an existing grass area in the north-western corner of the leisure centre.
Construction is due to begin next month.
The council said it be open during the warmer months of the year – approximately September to April – “with exceptions to be made for warm and sunny days outside of that period”.
It would include “safe slides, water fountains and play equipment to suit children of all ages and abilities and will also feature integrated shade structures and seating”.
We can't wait!
