Splashpad opening at BIG4 Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park

December 11, 2012
Just weeks before school breaks for its annual Christmas Holidays, BIG4 Sydney Lakeside will open its brand new Vortex Aquatic Playground this week.
The 180 metre2 zero-depth facility is designed on an organic theme which compliments the picturesque location and relaxed holiday atmosphere of the park.
Designed to allow children of all ages unlimited and safe water fun, the Splashpad features watercannons, the ever popular 5 Bells Dumping Buckets, Watergarden Leaf and Frog, Water Jellies and the multi-coloured Spray Loops.
An important design feature of the BIG4 Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park is the appropriate zoning of activities and equipment according to the age and abilities of the children who will use it. With soft mists, bubbling features and gentle sprays a prominent feature of the toddler zone juxtaposed against the more powerful (but still safe) watercannons, dumping bells and mists of the family area the BIG4 Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park is the epitome of family fun.
BIG4 Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park received a Highly Commended in the 2012 Greater Sydney Tourism Award in the Tourism and Caravan Park Category.
