The new nautical-themed water play park, complete with tipping buckets and interactive (cause and effect) features is set to be every kids’ favourite place to visit when it opens later this year! The added bonus is that it will also have a shade sail, in-built filtration systems and zero depth – making this a water play area that is super safe for little ones to totter around and make a splash.

The PLC already boasts many fun features including its indoor toddler pool with mini-water slide and bubble jets, along with the popular flume water slide for the bigger kids. Plus, it’s one of the best places to hang during the school holidays with its giant inflatable obstacle course that lures kids from up and down the Central Coast. With the addition of this $1 million outdoor water park project, we think you’ll have a hard time getting your kids to leave – hello shrivelled fingers!

The aquatic centre is also home to an indoor, heated, Olympic-sized 50 metre pool that often hosts school swimming carnivals – plus the centre has a pool specifically dedicated to the children’s ‘Learn to Swim’ program. Other features of the centre include a warm water program pool, a heated spa, sauna and steam room.

Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said, “this new water play park can be enjoyed upon entry to the PLC. We expect it to attract community members from the Peninsula and across the Coast, and of course visitors to our beautiful region”.
