New splashpad opens in western Sydney

New splashpad opens in western Sydney
April 29, 2014

Parramatta’s first Splashpad opened to the appreciative smiles of local Merrylands residents on the 9th April 2014.

Divided into three age-appropriate zones and accessible by wheelchairs and other mobility devices, the Splashpad is already providing water fun for people of all ages and abilities.

Located at Granville Park, the Splashpad will be open nine months of the year.

Welcoming the opening of the Splashpad, Parramatta Lord Mayor John Chedid told Sydney newspaper The Daily Telegraph that the attraction would provide plenty of fun during warmer months for children living locally.

Lord Mayor Chedid stated “the Council is thrilled to deliver families another attraction in Granville.

“Kids can spend the day splashing about while parents can kick back and relax in the park.”

Designed and installed by Vortex Aquatic Playgrounds, the Splashpad features an advanced water quality management system which continuously collects, sanitises and reuses the water.

As well as recycling water, the Splashpad’s energy-efficient, smart control system automatically switches off when not in use, for maximum sustainability.
