Cool way to beat the heat in Wan­garatta

North East Tourist News - - WANGARATTA -

WAN­GARATTA’S splash park is the city’s new wa­ter at­trac­tion for lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike.

Lo­cated in Mitchell Av­enue Park, the splash park was com­pleted in Novem­ber and was built by the same com­pany that built Bright’s splash park, Wa­ter Fea­tures by De­sign.

The park is based on a Moun­tains and Val­leys theme that was voted for by lo­cal chil­dren.

It fea­tures a big red bucket that dumps wa­ter on those be­low ev­ery few min­utes, as well as plenty of other fea­tures, in­clud­ing a drag­on­fly, wa­ter mush­rooms, tun­nels with wa­ter jets in­side, and a creek run­ning down the side of the big­gest moun­tain.

The splash park op­er­ates from 9am to 8pm through­out the sum­mer pool sea­son, which is due to end on March 31 in 2016.
