Brisbane families get excited! There will be a new place to cool down with a new Wynnum waterfront aqua park!
Brand new Wynnum waterfront aqua park
Coming to the Wynnum foreshore will be a brand new aqua park for bayside locals and those happy to drive for new and exciting fun for their families!
The Brisbane City Council will spend $600,000 on the Wynnum aqua park which will ‘reinvigorate the foreshore area’ and provide a vibrant new play area for all ages and abilities.
Waterfront aqua park inclusions
The Brisbane City Council have now developed a design for the aqua park, and are in the process of sharing this exciting news with the community and seeking feedback. The project will expand and transform the existing water play area at The Esplanade into an interactive aqua park, with a range of new features planned such as a splash tower with an overhead tipping bucket and waterslide, directional water jets, water spray features and fountains.
There will be a toddler play area with a bubbling stream and the whale play area will be enhanced with new water-spouting whales. A boat-shaped feature will also be installed, with waterspouts at the bow to replicate waves splashing.
There will also be a new concrete pathway constructed to incorporate the existing fish artwork, and new seating will be installed around the aqua park to create more shaded viewing areas.
This will ensure the facility can be enjoyed by the whole family, providing a range of play equipment and water features that cater to wide range of needs, ages and abilities.
Family friendly water park in Brisbane
The Wynnum Waterfront Aqua Park is one of four to be constructed across Brisbane suburbs, with similar facilities to be installed at Upper Kedron Recreation Reserve, Runcorn Pool and Langlands Pool at Coorparoo over the next three years.
As part of the 2016 Council election campaign, Cr Quirk announced the council would deliver four new kids aqua parks across the suburbs as part of a $3.3 million investment over four years.
The Brisbane City Council is also currently constructing a new aqua park at the Sandgate Aquatic Centre, which will provide another opportunity for people to head outdoors and enjoy our subtropical climate.
Our Brisbane swimming pools are more popular than ever, with more than 2.2 million people visiting Council pools last year, and a doubling in visitation over the last decade.
