Safety first at Tewantin Spray Park
  • Saturday 09 June 2012

Maintaining the highest possible safety standards is a top priority for Sunshine Coast Council at all of its facilities.

To ensure the ongoing welfare of patrons at the Tewantin Spray Park, council is set to temporarily close the facility from Tuesday 12 June to Thursday 27 June to perform a number of upgrades.

The Spray Park’s wet surface areas will be resurfaced with a new polymer product (Polysoft) that will provide a more forgiving, slip-resistant surface for park users. Repairs will also be made to the existing shade structure and site drainage works.

Division 12 Councillor Tony Wellington said the resurfacing works will greatly improve the facility for families.

“Since the Spray Park opened, a range of safety issues have been raised by the community. Council is seeking to address those concerns,” he said.

“Closing the park during the winter months to perform the works will minimise the impact on users.

“The Polysoft product being used to resurface the Spray Park is made from brightly coloured polymer beads. This same product is currently in use at places like Dreamworld.

“Appropriate signage will be in place at the Tewantin Spray Park to keep the public informed about the works in progress.”
