On 31 January 2018 Council resolved to award the tender to TP Aquatic Constructions to design and construct a $1.7 million water park in Proserpine.
The winning contractor specialises in water parks 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 council includes the latest in water park features with a focus on more interactive water play areas and slides.
The water park will be built adjacent to the Proserpine Swimming Pool and construction is expected to commence in late February with a completion date of mid to late June, depending on the weather.
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.
