Wave of visitors set to slide into Nambour’s vibrant new Splash Park 

Now Open Nambour Aquatic Centre Splash Park

The Sunshine Coast’s newest community water park is set to attract even more visitors to the region’s hinterland heart – offering more than 580 square metres of healthy and active water play for people of all ages and abilities.

Sunshine Coast Council will officially unveil the vibrant $3.26 million Nambour Aquatic Centre Splash Park on Friday 16 September with the new adventure water slides open to the community from Saturday 17 September.

The complete Splash Park features a zero-depth and fully accessible splash pad along with toddler slides, water jet features and tipping buckets, two new adventure water slides measuring 60 and 67 metres in length, new landscaping, shade sails, and 44 additional car parking spaces for pool patrons.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said the new Splash Park would ensure Nambour remained an attractive family destination and provide a positive social uplift for the community.

“Projects like the new Nambour Splash Park connect communities, with residents now able to come together to enjoy a water wonderland in the heart of the hinterland,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“We recognise Nambour as a vital anchor for our region. As such, the town has featured extensively in Council’s $847 million budget this financial year.

“In addition to the Splash Park and the recently awarded Nambour Forecourt Revitalisation, planning is now underway for Nambour’s Namba Place Revitalisation Project which will see streetscape improvement projects on Currie Street, Howard Street and Mill Street, along with the Nambour Administration Precinct project which will further connect council with the community.

“Together, these projects provide a significant opportunity to drive renewed visitation and investment into Nambour and our surrounding hinterland communities.”

Sunshine Coast Council Division 10 Councillor David Law said the multi-functional Splash Park would put Nambour on the tourism map and further cater for a growing population of hinterland residents.

“There has been an incredible appetite for the new Splash Park,” Cr Law said.

“The zero-depth splash pad has been a major drawcard since opening earlier this year with little ones thoroughly enjoying water play, even during Queensland’s cooler months.

“With warmer weather approaching and the addition of two huge water slides, I imagine thrill-seekers of all ages will welcome a plunge at this great facility.

“As well as providing hours of family fun, the Splash Park encourages children’s physical and sensory development through interaction with water play elements.

“Together with the existing 50-metre lap pool and 25 metre indoor pool, I believe the Nambour Aquatic Centre has set a new benchmark for community waterparks in our region.”

Member for Nicklin Rob Skelton said the Palaszczuk Government was delivering for Nambour and the Sunshine Coast through the Works for Queensland Program.

“We’re committed to Nambour and the greater Sunshine Coast, investing in new facilities to create jobs and improve the already fantastic lifestyle of locals,” Mr Skelton said.

“Nambour is one of the best places to live in Queensland, and for young families it’s even better now with the opening of this Splash Park.

“The Palaszczuk Government has invested more than $1.05 million and created more than 24 good local jobs building the Splash Park.

“Now that it’s completed, local families are able to come and enjoy this wonderful new facility.”  

Belgravia Leisure’s Queensland State Manager Dan Cullen said he was thrilled to welcome the community back to the Nambour Aquatic Centre.

“Mark your diary for our family-friendly opening celebration on Saturday, September 17, featuring free entry to the aquatic centre and unlimited use of the adventure water slides for $6.50 per person,” Mr Cullen said.

“There will also be a Welcome to Country by the Gubbi Gubbi Dyungungoo Group Inc, free cultural workshops, community stalls, Nambour Swim Club Swimathon, Learn to Swim and Squad assessments, come and try aqua aerobics classes and our popular inflatable course.”

Entry to the zero-depth splash pad is included in the standard pool admission price and available seven days a week.

Unlimited access to the two adventure water slides is $6.50 per person, in addition to the standard pool admission price.

During school holidays, the slides will be open Monday to Sunday, 10.30am to 3pm, while during the school term, slide access will be available on Saturday and Sunday, 10.30am to 3pm.

Private functions and birthday party bookings are also available upon request.

The $3.26 million Nambour Aquatic Centre Splash Park was developed with the support of the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland program in association with Sunshine Coast Council, and pool lessee Belgravia Leisure.

The Nambour Aquatic Centre Splash Park was designed and delivered by main contractor Beau Corp Aquatic & Construction in conjunction with council’s in-house project team.
