TP Aquatic Constructions to build new Proserpine aquatic play park

TP Aquatic Constructions to build new Proserpine aquatic play park
February 6, 2018

Whitsunday Regional Council has announced that it has awarded a $1.7 million design and construct tender for a new aquatic playground, to be built adjacent to the Proserpine Swimming Pool, to Townsville-based TP Aquatic Constructions.

The winning contractor specialises in aquatic play and swimming pools and recently completed the new water park at Cannonvale Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday, utilising many local contractors.

The concept design chosen by the Council includes the latest in aquatic play features with a focus on interactive water play areas and slides.

It will be the first project delivered from the Proserpine Masterplan which was adopted late last year and the design has utilised many lessons learnt from the installation and operation of the Bowen water park to ensure a durable and low maintenance facility.

Commenting on the planned facility, Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Andrew Willcox said it was fantastic that Proserpine was finally going to get a water park.

Mayor Willcox advised “this is a great first step in revitalising the Proserpine district and will add another attraction to lure grey nomads and families to detour from the highway for a stopover.

"This is becoming an excellent community precinct for the town with the caravan park, golf course, tennis club, bowls club and swimming facility all nearby."

Construction is expected to start in late February with a completion date of mid to late June, depending on the weather.
