The water play feature is on 7 December to 9 March.
It features an interactive splash pad experience for children, with small bubblers that cascade water over rocks and larger water jets that splash water onto the splash pad for children to play in and walk through.
The bubblers and jets are operated by foot buttons located on the splash pad and operate in random patterns for a set time.
Operating times and conditions of use
The system is automated to operate between 9.30am and 8pm in summer months and foot buttons are only active during these times.
The splash pad is a treated body of water that must meet health regulations to operate. The control system continually tests the water and when chemical levels do not meet specifications, it will turn itself off to fix the issue. This may cause the splash pad to stop operating for as little as five minutes, or on occasion it may take more than an hour. Once the system detects the chemical levels are acceptable the splash pad will restart.
Signs placed at access paths to the water play feature will detail the conditions of use. Parental supervision of children using the water play feature is required. No dogs or pets are allowed. Food, drink and glass is banned.
