WELCOME TO OUR NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER, WHERE THE WEATHER IS HEATING UP AND OUR FOCUS SHIFTS TO AQUATIC PLAY ENVIRONMENTS AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO COOL OFF!


This month, we want to share with you an incredible project we have recently completed for the rural town of Winton in Central Queensland, and throw the spotlight on some of our favourite aquatics products to help you create your own interactive water plaza. We’ve also got some handy tips on designing and maintaining an efficient waterplay environment from our Aquatics Specialist, Shane Vardy.

PROJECT SNAPSHOT

Winton Aquatics Centre

In the central heartland of Queensland lies Winton; a small town steeped in nature, culture and history. From prehistoric dinosaur sites to boulder opals, stunning National Parks and the legend of Waltzing Matilda, Winton is a thriving destination for travellers from around Australia.


Council’s vision for this space was to create a dedicated waterpark; they wanted something big with slides and elevated towers, not just a splashpad. The facility needed to be big enough not just for the local community but to create a drawcard for the whole region, attracting travellers from Longreach and all over Queensland to Winton to discover the town and create ongoing economic and social benefits for the whole community.


Featuring four slides, net climbers, water cannons, a multitude of interactive elements and a mega dumping bucket at the top of the structure, the brightly coloured tower entices children to explore their whole environment and find their next challenge. A fully managed water re-circulation, filtration and sanitation system has been designed and installed within this aquatic playspace, minimising ongoing wateruse and asset maintenance costs.
