Fairfield Council advances plans for development of Prairiewood Water Park

Fairfield Council advances plans for development of Prairiewood Water Park
April 23, 2014

Fairfield City Council is advancing plans to develop waterpark facilities at its Prairiewood Leisure Centre, with the addition of a family aqua play area, a splashpad, waterslides, a standing surf wave simulator and a beach area containing shade umbrellas and sun lounges.

With the success of the Wet'n'Wild Sydney waterpark and the aquaplay area at the Fairfield Leisure Centre showing the potential for aquatic leisure and waterpark facilities in Western Sydney, Fairfield Mayor Frank Carbone proposed what he dubbed an 'adventure water park' to provide more family-friendly activities for residents.

Mayor Carbone stated "the adventure water park will be a great additional feature to already existing facilities at Prairiewood Leisure Centre, and will add a new attraction for families visiting.

"Our families already face tough times without having to travel outside of our city to find activities for their children. The adventure water park will save on cost but provide the same fun experience our kids are wanting from family trips."

The Council has just published a Tender (RFT18FY14 - Design, Supply & Construction of Prairiewood Water Park) "seeking professional organisations that can provide a high standard of capability experienced contractor in the design, supply and construction of Prairiewood Water Park."

The successful tenderer(s) would be expected to" provide a scalable, multi-level modular, innovative and interactive water play park area that provides family friendly entertainment resulting in return visits."

As part of this requirement Council seeks excellent service and a strong commitment to provide optimum results.  This request for tender seeks to test the market to ensure Council obtains value for money in the undertaking of this work.

The Council will be staging a briefing session on its project at 10.30am on Tuesday 29th April at the Prairiewood Leisure Centre.

Tenderers wishing to attend this briefing session are asked to email Fairfield City Council Procurement Coordinator Annette Walker: awalker@fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au, to confirm their attendance.

The Tender, which can be viewed by clicking here, closes at 2.30pm on 21st May 2014.

Making further comment on the proposal, Mayor Carbone concluded "the water park will have a number of exciting features to entertain children of all ages including multiple water apparatuses for the older kids, and a possible man-made beach area for the younger ones to enjoy. There will also be picnic facilities to enable families to use the water park as a venue for special occasions such as birthdays."
