THE PERFECT SPOT FOR WATER BABIES

Published: Tuesday, 16 June 2020 at 9:16:48 AM

Did you know that one of the favourite meeting points for the little ones is right in the town centre?

The expansive 450m2 aquatic facility incorporates custom-made fibreglass animals including spouting turtles, dolphins and a magnificent humpback whale as its centrepiece with a 4.5m long head and 2m high by 3m wide showering tail. The whale body and fins are defined by contrasting Polysoft rubber flooring designed to appear as if the animal is surfacing from the deep.

In celebration of the region’s rich cultural history, a boat feature based on the Pearl Luggers of old was incorporated with water projecting from the mast and rails as well as purpose-built cannons set on each side.

The unique, hand-forged 120m2 cave is constructed from 140 tonnes of concrete and carved to emulate the local Cape Range. It features sensor mist sprays and cascading water over non-slip steps that lead to the play area with fossilised fauna and flora moulded into its walls.
The rubber floor is set with 76 randomly sequenced ground sprays to keep kids guessing about where the water might spout next.

The entire park is designed to highlight and promote important aspects of the North West Cape’s cultural and environmental heritage which has received World Heritage status.
A permanent, cyclone rated curved shade structure ensures year-round access to the play area, which is also fitted with coloured LED lighting.

We hope you enjoy the space and ask you to supervise your children at all times. Thank you.
