A new $3.2 million water park has opened in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, attracting more than 4,000 visitors on the opening weekend of school holidays.
The Nambour Aquatic Centre Splash Park features more than 580 square metres of exciting waterplay, including two giant slides measuring 60 and 67 metres in length.
Sunshine Coast Council Mayor, Mark Jamieson said the new Splash Park was already attracting visitors from across the region.
“The Nambour Splash Park has provided an incredible opportunity for our community to access some of the region’s most exciting community waterplay facilities – right here in the heart of the hinterland,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“This will be a meeting place for many families for years to come, connecting our communities and enhancing the active and healthy lifestyle that we enjoy most.”
Sunshine Coast Council Division 10 Councillor, David Law who attended the weekend’s community opening celebration, said he was thrilled to see the Splash Park being enjoyed at long last.
“It was absolutely incredible,” Cr Law said.
“Eager thrill-seekers of all ages have welcomed a plunge at this great new facility, with a strong flow of visitors all day.
“The community is so thankful for this wonderful new attraction, and it is truly a delight to see the joy it brings.
“Together with the existing 50-metre lap pool and 25 metre indoor pool, I believe the Nambour Aquatic Centre has set a new benchmark for community waterparks in our region.”
The park was developed with the support of the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland program in association with Sunshine Coast Council, and pool lessee, Belgravia Leisure.
