Yeppoon looks to develop foreshore lagoon and wave pool
Livingstone Shire Council is looking to develop a lagoon and wave pool on the Yeppoon foreshore.
Livingstone Mayor Bill Ludwig is hoping that the $5 million development will also feature an amphitheatre and splash pad – with the area to resemble Darwin's Water Lagoon when complete.
Mayor Ludwig said the idea for the wave pool came from members of the community, telling The Moring Bulletin “it's something that people had spoken to us about and brought to our attention because it provides some other action activities for the teenagers and families.
"We had to wait and see how much funding we'd receive from the government, but we're confident that in these stages, given the amount of state money we've been given, we can incorporate the wave pool.
"The estimates to build it are $5 million; that's to get it built and installed with all filtration. “We're also looking to have it designed with some specialised features because we want that real wow factor.”
The development would be situated on old hospital land adjacent to Yepoon’s skate park.
