Parkequip aquatic playground installation revitalises Liverpool park
Leading park and play equipment supplier Parkequip have shared details of a recent project at Bigge Park in the Western Sydney suburb of Liverpool that has transformed a rundown bowling club into a thriving, family-friendly park.
Part of a $5 million Liverpool City Council project to upgrade the area, the key feature of the park is the zero-depth waterplay zone containing three central attractions: a giant Mega Soaker Bucket that tips large volumes of water onto those below; a range of Water ‘O’s that feature in six round rings, and Cannons that youngsters can use to shoot water across the vicinity.
A variety of additional equipment is scattered throughout the zone, providing hours of refreshing fun and cool relief on even the hottest days.
Themed in cooling shades of blue, silver and green, the equipment has an ocean-inspired atmosphere complemented by large shade sails strung overhead that ensure there are plenty of places for visitors to take refuge from the sun. Sun lounges are also dotted around the surrounding area, providing sufficient seating for families to relax.
Hygiene is ensured with the playground’s water being treated and recycled to commercial swimming pool standards.
The Council developed the facility in part due to Liverpool’s distance from the beach while providing a popular family amenity in an area with many high-rise units.
The project also included versatile smart poles equipped with security cameras, Wi-Fi and speakers would future-proof the park and make it vandal-proof; better lighting and pathways around the water play area would be installed in response to a consultation process, including recent surveys from park users.
