Wave pools and water parks in the works


Friday, 01 December, 2017


Wave pools and water parks are the order of the day at the moment, according to reports published on Australian Leisure Management.

Operators of Surf n Slide in Manly are releasing plans for revitalisation of the attraction, including four new waterslides and a surfing wave pool. The former Manly Waterworks site was reopened late last year and the new owners are looking to lease additional land to meet with their plans for expansion, which will also include an interactive toddler pool. 

Meanwhile, over in Western Australia’s Goldfields region, Kalgoolie-Boulder Mayor John Bowler wants to develop a lagoon-style beach or surf park with an artificial wave adjacent to the Goldfields Oasis aquatic and recreation centre. Being 400 km from the nearest surf beach, the mayor thinks an outdoor beach would attract greater numbers than the existing indoor pool. If a lagoon-style artificial beach went ahead, it would likely include a swimming area of about 1.2 hectares.

A formal proposal and business plan will be put together after public consultation.
