HINCHINBROOK COMMUNITY SET TO GET CHILDREN’S WATER PLAYGROUND
As part of Council’s ongoing commitment to improving local facilities within the Hinchinbrook Shire the Hinchinbrook Aquatic Centre will soon be home to a newly constructed children’s water playground.
Designed for children aged one to 10 years, the water playground features a ‘Wild Wilderness’ theme and will reflect some of the region's diverse marine life and iconic bird and reptile species.
Through the formal tendering process Water Features by Design was awarded the contract for the Hinchinbrook Aquatic Centre Waterpark, tendered at $500,000.
Mayor Ramon Jayo has said ‘Council recognises that the Hinchinbrook Shire is a great place to live and raise a family. We have excellent schools and sporting facilities, a relaxed lifestyle and numerous untapped opportunities.’
‘We have chosen to invest in this water playground for the families with younger children, to make the Hinchinbrook Shire an even better place to live and raise young families.’
The Mayor acknowledged that the project was funded with the assistance of the State Government through the Works for Queensland Fund.
The water playground will reflect the natural attributes and beauty our region is known for, from mangrove channels to sandy white beaches, wetlands and rainforest. Features of the water playground include a large play area with a showering palm tree, butterfly showering pole, dumper bucket and water cannon. As well as a mangrove channel featuring weirs where children will be able to direct the flow of water down into the wading pool.
