New water play park at Leisure Centre

Construction of a $1 million "water play park" is underway at the Peninsula Leisure Centre.

Billed as an "interactive water-based play and education space", the project is expected to be completed by the end of June.

The nautical-themed are will include a tipping bucket, interactive features, a shade sail, in-built filtration system and "zero depth" for safety and accessibility.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the project would be one of many Council will undertake during the coronavirus pandemic.

She said it would "contribute to several of the objectives outlined in our Strategic Plan One Central Coast, including creating liveable cities and healthy lifestyles for our growing community".

Council director Ms Julie Vaughan said the project was developed in response to community comments that the centre's outdoor space should be better utilised.

"This new Water Play Park can be enjoyed upon entry to the centre.

"We expect it to attract community members from the Peninsula and across the Coast, and of course visitors to our region," Ms Vaughan said.

"The design selected is focused on creating a safe, water-based play space that can be accessed by people of all ages and abilities for fun and education."

Its cost will be met with a grant of $850,000 from the State Government's Stronger Country Communities fund and more than $200,000 from Central Coast Council.
