Work started on clearing the site for the brand new Proserpine Water Park in mid-April 2018, with some trees removed and safety fencing installed. New palm trees and landscaping will be planted once the water park equipment is installed.
The Water Park equipment is currently being manufactured and installation is expected to begin in early June. Before the equipment arrives, earthworks and foundations will be underway. The Water Park is expected to be completed by mid-July, weather permitting.
On 31 January 2018 Council resolved to award the tender to TP Aquatic Constructions to design and construct a $1.7 million water park in Proserpine, adjacent to the Proserpine Swimming Pool.
The winning contractor specialises in water parks and swimming pools and recently completed the new water park at Cannonvale Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday, utilising many local contractors.
The concept design chosen by council includes the latest in water park features with a focus on more interactive water play areas and slides.
It will be the first project delivered from the Proserpine Masterplan which was adopted late last year and the design has utilised many lessons learnt from the installation and operation of the Bowen water park to ensure a durable and low maintenance facility.
