Kingsway water playground on target
Published Tuesday, 3rd September 2019
Construction of the highly anticipated aquatic play space at Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex in Madeley is progressing well.
Mayor Tracey Roberts said the project was on track to be open to the public in October, pending water quality testing from the Department of Health.
“Sporting a dinosaur theme, the aquatic play space has been designed to complement the adjacent and ever popular Dinosaur Park playground,” Mayor Roberts said.
“The community support for this project has been overwhelming, with children from across the City eager to have fun at this community-based attraction.
“The addition of the water playground to Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex will further enhance its reputation as a favourite destination for families.”
Senator Dean Smith, Patron Senator for Perth’s northern suburbs, said the aquatic play space was important to Perth’s north eastern suburbs.
“Parks and associated amenities are part of the glue that keeps our communities together,” Senator Smith said.
“This project will allow local children to run around, and have some fun at the dinosaur themed splash pad, while their parents can unwind.
“I’m pleased the Federal Government is backing this project, with a $300,000 contribution.”
Construction on the 180sqm, $700,000 play space began in July.
The play space aims to provide a range of interactive experiences, with elevated sprays as well as ground sprays and jets.
