Sunshine Coast Council is constructing a new Splash Park at the Nambour Aquatic Centre. The $3.26 million investment includes a children’s zero-depth and fully accessible splash pad and two adventure slides, along with the recently added 44 new car parking spaces.
The project is set to deliver a water wonderland in the heart of the hinterland and be a drawcard to the town.
Together with the centre’s existing 50 metre lap pool and 25 metre indoor pool, the new water play facilities will allow people of all ages to enjoy hours of healthy and active fun.
This exciting Splash Park is being developed with the support of Council, the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland program, and pool lessee Belgravia Leisure.
- Ahead of the official Splash Park opening in mid-2022, residents and visitors can enjoy advance access to the new zero-depth splash pad from Saturday 22 January (weather permitting).
- A one hundred square metre shade sail is in production and will be added to the splash pad in early-2022.
- Two new adventure slides, measuring 60 and 67 metres in length, are anticipated to open in mid-2022.
The project has experienced construction delays during 2021 due to extended periods of wet weather, challenging ground conditions, and resource and supply difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the Splash Park construction continues over the summer school holidays, the pools will remain open for residents and visitors, except for Christmas Day.
