Mudgee’s outdoor water park is one step closer, with the Mid-Western Regional Council announcing that they have begun drafting concept designs for the project.
The park was announced in May this year after council secured $800,000 in grant funding to build the all-new facility through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities fund. This fund was designed to improve economic growth and productivity through investment in regional communities.
The total cost of the new park will be $1.05, but many local residents are set to benefit from the new park, as it will provide a family friendly activity for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. The community identified it as one of the top three priority projects during consultations for the Mid-Western Region Towards 2030 Community Plan.
The water park is set to be located within the Mudgee Pool facility and so far there are plans for it to include water slides, splash pads, tipping buckets, spray cannons and fountains.
Once complete it is set to be comparable to Dubbo’s waterpark at Elston Park.
Mudgee’s water park is predicted to be finished by the end of the 2018/19 swimming season.
Council have also announced that they will undertake a feasibility study for an indoor aquatic centre as part of the 2018/19 Operational Plan.
