Porirua’s new splash pad at Aotea Lagoon is on track to open before Christmas 2017.
Construction is well underway – and details of the opening will be announced shortly.
Making the biggest splash will be a massive 6 metre high water bucket dumper called the supersplash.
The 250 square metre splash pad is being built on the Number 1 lawn near the public BBQ facilities at Aotea Lagoon, on Papakowhai Road.
The $880,000 splash pad will feature three bays aimed at toddlers, families and teens and the water features will work in random patterns to keep the fun flowing. The water will be treated and recirculated.
The toddler bay will include low-level water jellies, misters, sprays and a water bug they can sit underneath, surrounded by a curtain of water.
The family bay will include jets of water in a variety of shapes and sizes, a rainbow series of curved poles that shoot out misty water, and a rainforest that will pour water from three tall leafy structures.
The teen bay will have spray cannons, in-ground water jets and the massive supersplash dumper bucket.
